Household dynamic:

Their oldest son is five-years-old and is in pre-kindergarten five days per week during the day, while their two-year-old daughter attends nursery school five half-days per week. Their youngest son is just three months old and is full of smiles! The kids love arts and crafts, imaginative play, reading, and being outside. They also have two playful and good-natured dogs.
  • Mom is on parental leave until February and then both parents will be working in and out of the home. They currently have one full-time nanny, a part-time housekeeper, and a part-time house manager. The parents are strong believers in the RIE method and child-led learning. They have a strong desire for someone who can be a pillar of support to their family, as they hope to build a long-term relationship with their family assistant/nanny.
