Full-time Nanny Needed for Loving family In Somerville, Massachusetts

Somerville, Massachusetts

Lovely first-time parents are looking for an experienced nanny for their newborn. Their son will be five months at the start of the position. This position is ideal for someone who has recent experience working with infants. Someone passionate about nurturing the growth and development of the infants in their care. (E.g., actively looking for ways to enhance child development.) The nanny must be self-sufficient and able to create a safe, fun learning environment for the child.
