Looking for a Nanny

The Schuman family from CTK Somerville is looking for a full-time nanny 4-5 days per week for their 7-month-old son when the mother returns to work full time on Feb 1st. They live in East Somerville--a 10 minute walk from the Sullivan square station. If you're excited about infant development with a sweet, serious, focused, and laidback baby, this could be the job for you! This job is a little different from a typical full-time nanny position because their son is experiencing some delays in his gross motor development due to an injury he experienced at birth. The right nanny for him would have an active and compassionate personality and be curious about and excited for the opportunity to learn hands on physical therapy activities that are integrated into his daily routine. For more information and details, email Caitlin Schuman.
