Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency is assisting a family in Huntersville, NC in finding a Part-Time Nanny for their boys, ages 4.5 (turning 5 in September) and 2.5 (turning 3 in January). The Nanny would be needed M-F 20 hours a week, the days and hours can vary depending on the best nanny candidate’s availability, with additional babysitting needs on occasion as requested by the parents. Both parents will be present in the home while the nanny is working but will be attending to their professional duties physically separated from the children. The nanny will be the sole adult caregiver during the nanny’s work hours.

The best nanny for this family would be energetic as the boys have boundless energy. The nanny should also be creative and good-natured.

The nanny should be able to come up with fun, creative learning activities for them to keep them active, engaged, and learning. The parents would like the nanny to help continue to prepare their older son for entering kindergarten in the fall of 2021.
