We have a new Monday and Wednesday part-time opportunity in the UWS with 2 musical and active boys, 4 & 7! They are looking for help from 2:45-7:45 PM, Monday to Thursday. They are looking for someone reliable and fun who can encourage the boys in creative and engaging ways. It should be noted they are a no screens house, so encouragement through games, arts and crafts, music, etc., is preferred. It's $20-25/hour, 20 hours/week guaranteed, $400-500/week! This position would begin ASAP, with interviews taking place early next week. Please note then you’re available to meet with the family near their home. #yestomannies!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone with experience with this age group and a passion for child care. Someone creative (to invent interesting activities for the boys) and loving, but also firm with the ability to be strict when it comes to encouraging good behavior. Someone comfortable taking public transportation with the boys and who can ensure safety when out on the street or in the house. Someone healthy and active, who can encourage imaginative and creative play over screens as they have a no screens policy in their home. Portuguese or German speaking, or an interest in music’s a plus, but not required.
Monday through Thursday, from 2:45 to 7:45 PM. We may need also help from time to time at night, to be agreed as time permits.
