We have a lovely veteran UES family (one of my all-time favorites) looking for morning assistance with mom and their three kids. They have worked with several SmartSitters in the past including our former Director of Recruitment, Emma! The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 6:15-8:15 AM. They will be working alongside mom to help with the morning routine! It's $60-75/morning for 5 mornings/week. The position will begin as soon as possible with interviews taking place starting next week.
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone who is fairly adaptable and willing to learn the family's particular approach to praise and discipline for the kids, especially as the boy is in therapies and they have particular strategies and approaches for him. Someone who is CPR certified and has experience with these age groups. An open and flexible approach is best as they learn the flow of the family. Someone willing to help prepare and clean up from meals for the family in the morning which are typically light and easy. A proactive and communicative sitter is ideal. Someone who likes things tidy and organized is likely to be a better fit.
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 6:15-8:15 AM.
About the Children
Boy, age 6 - He's very energetic, smart, and creative! He loves doing crafts, building legos and reading. He is very inventive and likes creating car ramps, boats, and other fun toys out of boxes, paper and whatever else he can get his hands on! He's a lego lover. He likes sports. He's learning to read and loves to be read to! He has ADHD, takes medicine and it's helpful for him to have structure in the afternoons. During preschool he had some behavioral issues and they are working with a professional to tackle this (see below). Girl, age 3 - She's super sweet and loving. She is fearless and very silly! She likes to dress up, dance and play with her older brother! She's learning letters and counting. She has caught the princess fever. She loves ballet and walking around in a tutu. She naps in the afternoon. Boy, 9 months- He is super cuddly and a really lovely baby. They get along really well, however, the position is primarily with the boy.
The SmartSitter will work alongside mom to help tackle the morning routine with the three kids! They will assist with emptying the dishwasher, packing school lunches, helping to make family breakfasts, supervising the children eating, and holding and supervising the baby. They will assist with supervising the children getting dressed and cleaning up from breakfast. Occasionally, they will walk the girl to school two blocks away and in the summer they will take the older two to the day camp bus.
