I am a part-time teacher and am in need of a part-time nanny for two days a week (most likely Wed. and Fri.) from 12:00-4:00pm. I would need someone to pick up my twin four year old girls from preschool (about 5 min. from my house), bring them home and stay with them. My 10 year old son will come home off the bus at 3:00pm and my 8 year old daughter will come home around 4:00. I will be home shortly after that. Please contact me at 330-405-2510. Laura Faini
