Our lovely nanny is looking for a full time position or share for a total of 40 hours/week. Raquel has been with our family for the past 3 years and I strongly recommend her. I'd love to keep her, but, with both our boys in school this fall we won't be able to provide enough hours.
She is wonderful with our 2 boys (ages 6 and 3) and they are quite a handful! My boys are high energy, emotional kids and she works wonders with them. They behave so much better when they are in her charge. She has made an extensive network of friends in the neighborhood (Burleith/Glover Park) and is always arranging play dates and outings with other children. Extremely reliable, she’s only had one sick day in 3 years (and she has 3 school age boys of her own!). Most importantly, I know my boys are safe when with her and I’ve never worried that they aren’t being cared for properly.
She is fluent in both Spanish and English and speaks only Spanish to our youngest. She has a driver’s license and drives our car when transporting the boys to their activities.
