The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Strong executive functioning skills are key. It's important to keep track of details (make sure the lunches are correct, that every detail for each kid is prepared for the next day, etc.) There's a lot going on and it's important to keep up. It's important to understand and be aware that the kid are all very different and there's no one formula that works for all of them. Driving is a requirement. The family has an extra car available. It's okay if you prefer to drive your car in which case the parents will reimburse you for gas. It's important you really love working with kids. The kids are young enough and they still like to be engaged in games, cooking, and art projects. Mom will write out the full schedule at first. It's helpful for you to read the schedule closely, get the hand of things, know what to do after a couple weeks, and then own it moving forward.
The core schedule is Monday through Thursday, 1/2 PM until 7/8 PM. Friday is optional. The family is comfortable guaranteeing an income up to 40 hours/week for additional household management responsibilities if you are looking for full-time. ***In your application, please include if you prefer part-time or full-time.***
