Someone super engaging and active who can stimulate the kids and even help with homework from time to time. Someone who can play and read with the kids, really chatting with them a lot.

They can go to the playground after school or play at home, then dinner at 5:30 PM, and then bath. The family has a backyard, too, so lots of outdoor fun is most definitely to be had! They also have a car if the SmartSitter would be willing to drive for some pick ups in Brooklyn, however this is not required.
