* The Nanny that responded to the above Ad received this:
The position is a 40 – 45 hour a week job. It involves taking care of the property including a little bit of housework such as doing some laundry sometimes, cleaning the bathrooms once a week, and maybe doing some light cleaning. It also includes a lot of yard work. Mowing the grass, edging, weed eating, pulling weeds, fertilizing, tending the garden, and such. The position also includes caring for our 2 horses, which includes cleaning their stalls and feeding them. I would like to find a special woman who can do that, and also be open to my sexual advances. I am a very nice, well mannered, and attractive man. In exchange, we offer a clean, beautiful, and private detached apartment, plus a salary, vacation, 401k, and insurance. The Apartment comes with all paid utilities plus high speed Internet and Direct TV. The apartment is located on the premises. I can make a vehicle available for the right person. I am being forthright in my job description. You will find that I am a very respectful person, and would ask the same in return. If this sounds like a position that you would be interested in, please send me a picture of yourself and a phone number. All applications are taken in confidence

3) Looking for a Nanny (Poulsbo)
I am looking to find a permanent nanny for my two children (5 & 7 yrs). I require a free, 4-hr trial run session to see how things will work out. I cannot afford to pay every applicant until I find the right fit. If after the trial run, you like my children, and they like you, and everything ran smoothly, you could potentially be our new nanny! After you are hired on, I would at that time be able to pay you $5 hr. I know that's not much, but times are tough. Once I am making more, I will probably be able to pay more. I don't mind if you have your own children, the more the merrier!

4) Plus size Nanny with a heart of gold (Newport Beach)
I posted my size in the title because people often judge according to outward appearance and I just want it known that while I may be plus sized I can still do all that you need done and more! You won't have to worry about your husband around me unless he likes large women but I would never betray you in that sense or myself! I am not a home wrecker. The main thing is your children will adore me. I hope to hear from you.

5) Mother's Helper/Personal Assistant/Housekeeper (Rainier Beach)
My "to do" list is too long and the day is too short. I have two small children, a too small house, and much too much stuff. I have been trying to organize and pack for a move to an even smaller house, in the midst of the renovation of that tiny house, while doing the legwork and the groundwork for demolishing our current house, all while running around after my busy, messy little boys. Hmm...what's that all add up to? DISASTER! I surrender - it's time to call in some help. Ideally, I would like to hire someone willing and able to do whatever is needed each visit - childcare, organizing, purging, packing, helping me lift and haul larger items, day-to- day housecleaning including dishes and laundry, more in-depth cleaning as we uncover several years' worth of dust bunnies and abandoned sippy cups... and other assorted, targeted projects as they arise. Not all simultaneously, of course. In other words, we need someone who has made running a busy household look easy, who can wrestle order from chaos, and is prepared for some intense work early on, and perhaps a lighter workload as things improve and settle down in our lives. You must be able to work independently as well as right alongside me, be resourceful, caring and not afraid of a mess, because we have a big one on our hands right now! If you are understanding, with a sense of humor, that would be great, and certainly will make your time around us easier. My sons are 4 years old and 20 months old and are amazingly wonderful little balls of energy. Our house is non-smoking and pet-free. I will work to be fair and flexible, respectful and reliable in all our dealings. If you can promise the same, and can roll up your sleeves and turn this trash heap back into a home for us, and then help us move it all, please respond with a statement about yourself and your skills and experience, as well as your earning expectations. Thanks very much.

13) Fun, enthusiastic Nanny! (Spring/The Woodlands)
Hello! I will be moving to this area next week and am looking to provide nannying services for a wonderful family! I have lots of experience with children! I began babysitting at the age of 11 and began nannying part time at the age of 17. I have worked for two of the best nanny agencies in my hometown where I did both temporary/one time sitting jobs as well as longer term jobs. I have cared for newborns, twins, and special needs kids. I have worked both long shifts throughout the week as well as overnight feeding shifts for newborns. I was a summer session counselor at an amazing summer camp for five years, where I would be in charge (day and night) of anywhere from 6-13 girls at a time, ages 8-13. I spent a semester in college volunteering at a special needs school, with children from ages 3-9. Usually I assisted during the math class, reading time, and occupational therapy though I did occasionally assist all day. My current job is as a Site Co-Director for an incredible after school care program. We have between 40-60 students daily. I am in charge of selecting the daily/weekly activites and setting these up, as well as providing supervision/interacting with the children. I love working with all these fun kids every day, but we have to move so that is why I am looking here! I have current CPR and First Aid certifications. I have a clean driving record and a safe car that is well-maintained. I graduated from the University of Texas last spring with a BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I would love a position where your child(ren) and I could have a fun, enriching day every day! Things that past charges and I have enjoyed doing together include: - reading aloud - taking walks to the park - baking together - arts and crafts projects - going on outings (such as visiting the Children's Museum, eating lunch out and people watching, visiting the library/bookstore) - swimming (I was on a summer swim team for eight years and am a strong swimmer!) I am looking to be paid $11/hr for one or two children ($1/hr more for each additional child). I am looking to be paid on the books. If you are intersted, please e-mail me with any questions you may have. I would love to hear about your child(ren) and what you are looking for in a childcare provider! Thank you! Alli

14) Needed Childcare part time (Lemmon/off Military/Reno)
I need part time day care for 2 children ages 4 and 5 (girl and boy). Only need it 3 days a week. We have a great sitter now but when we moved to this area it has made it harder for us to continue having her (she's 14 and in south reno). We were so lucky to have her. ****We only paid 30 a week. Looking for about the same price range****. A teenager thats looking for experience and something to do is preferred, but stay at home mom is great. I can even TRADE. I don't work morning and wouldn't mind trading days or hours with a parent. Days would be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturdays. Time would be 3pm to 5:30pm We could use a Saturday person now for both kids. My son still goes to school in south Reno for the rest of the school year, and with my work schedule I can't pick him up and bring him back here. So two days it would be just my daughter or I can just continue with the sitter I have til summer. ****Please note the amount we are hoping to pay. Please get back to me soon. I will be needing someone to cover for my current sitter starting April 4th. Call cell 530-566-****

17) Nanny needed to be a part of our Family (Anaheim Hills)
We have a need for a nanny. Our girl is 3 weeks old and we are looking for someone who has experience with children in this area. Live-out (maybe Live-in). Below are the details: -pay will be $1300/mo. or $65/day -hours will be Mon-Fri 7a-5:30p ( somedays may be shorter) -extra pay of $10/hr will be provided for extra shifts/hours/days -we have a siberian husky who is friendly and is an indoor dog, our nanny must be comfortable around our safe and friendly pet -some very minor housework would be nice but not required. Care of our child comes first -we are looking for someone to stay longterm with us. Pay will increase as our household grows/house grows or duties grow. -we would consider a live-in situation if the candidate is a right fit. Our 3 bedroom house is small so if you were to live-in we would only have minimal room. -we live 75 meters from a bus stop -we are a very friendly family - the more devoted our nanny is to helping our family, the more she would be a part of our family. As for experience, again, someone with newborn firsthand experience is essential. I understand that there may be applicants with Early Childhood Education classes or other professional training but we feel that no amount of schooling can take the place of first hand experience. As for language, english does not need to be your primary languange but we do require some understanding of english so that you can communicate with us over the phone should an emergency arise. Required: A valid driver's license and a cleaning driving record. We will also be conducting background checks with your persmission. References Agencies need not inquire: we want every cent of pay to go towards our nanny and not a 3rd party. Thanks for your interest

Re: Nany needed asap! (40511)
Gosh, if you can find anyone to babysit in your home for $100 -$115 a week and be trust worthy good luck. For a Nanny it's usually $400 to$500 a week. At your prices that would be $2.50 to$2.88 and hour. A day care is usually $130 or more a week and they have at least 1 person per 6 to 10 children so they make around $700 or more per chidcare provider per week.
