Can you be our Nanny ?   

Kids Names & Ages            Typical Day        About Your Room

Can you move to the Midwest? We live in Iowa and would love a Nanny of any age who has traveled and could teach our daughters an interesting skill or hobby. We have a great family with three adorable girls (oldest is in school during the day, ages 17 months to 9 years). Starting mid-August, we need a mature, loving, responsible person to care for our two youngest daughters during the day and oldest after school. Your responsibilities would include taking them to the park across the street, making lunch, keeping kitchen and bedrooms/play areas tidy, some light housekeeping. We are hoping to find a fun and energetic person, who loves children and can be a part of our family. We are seeking a person who would like to relocate, who feels a calling to work with children, and believes she has what it takes to help a family adjust as Mom returns to full time work.


Position includes: Large, furnished bedroom suite with two closets, private entry; Private bathroom ; Satellite TV; Laptop computer with internet access ; All utilities; All meals (when you are home); Sunday morning transportation to church of your choice, if needed; Plenty of privacy when not being a nanny; plus weekly salary of $150 (higher salary is negotiable); (If coming from out of state, we would helping on relocation costs). Two  weeks paid vacation a year plus more time off if needed/wanted.

 Feel free to email (cathy.desoto@uni.edu) and ask any questions. Retirees welcome!

....Your Bedroom....

(more info below)

 

Door to your own full bathroom

Nice View

Two white doors go to two good sized closets

Additional Info: There is a small room that we could convert to a kitchenette next to your room. Currently it is a small bedroom that you could use to house a guest.  The suite is on the third floor that  we seldom use unless we entertain (it is separated from the areas we use day to day and would allow sense of privacy when not working).

PS: You can of course change the pictures we have up, we want you to feel at home.
