The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The family is looking to work with someone flexible, fun, organized, and experienced working with this age. Someone organized and neat would be greatly appreciated. It's important that you can navigate the city. Also, it's important that you are interested in both girls and learn about them and engage them. Ideally someone who would be able to work on homework with the younger daughter as she can have a hard time starting and staying on task.
Monday - Friday 4:30 - 8:30PM
About the Children
Girl, 11 - The sitter would mostly be with her. She's energetic, flexible, mature, and friendly! She does aerial dance which is so cool! Can have a hard time focusing on homework. Girl, 15 - She comes home by herself later so you won’t be with her as much. She's calm, cooperative, and mature. She's into clothes and shopping and food. She's into wacky desserts. She has a bunch of friends she likes to hang out with. She likes music!
Pick-up the younger girl from school in the Bronx at 4:30, take her to her aerial dance classes or just bring her home to start homework. While care will be primarily for the younger daughter, the older daughter will come home around 7 or so and sitter will need to prepare a simple meal for them both (mom will arrange something to make).
The family does have a housekeeper who has acted as a babysitter/nanny in the past but they are transitioning her out of that role.
Through Fall 2019, ideally longer
