Nanny share for weekday mornings/early afternoons

Nanny share for weekday mornings/early afternoons We're looking for a family interested in doing a nanny share with our 2 year old daughter while our 4 year old daughter is in school. It could be for anytime between 830am–2pm, and could be any number of days of the week. Our warm and loving nanny Michelle has been with us for over two years. Both of our daughters have wonderful, loving relationships with her. Their faces light up the moment Michelle walks in the door. They sing and laugh and have a great time together. Michelle is kind, energetic, attentive and calm. She is a good communicator and takes initiative. She plans out their day — setting up play dates, taking them to museums, and to the park. And she is wonderful at balancing both of their needs. You can contact Michelle directly at 347-939-1097 or at keiara55[at]yahoo.com. You can also reach me at 203-435-2362 or at alizadzik[at]gmail.com.

In addition she helps around the house, organizes playdates and other activities for the kids (including but not limited to parks, playgrounds, museums, zoo, etc). She is originally from Africa, but is a US Citizen now (and can be paid on the books).
