The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The family is looking to work with someone with an energetic spirit who is tidy, a lot of fun and yet very responsible and mature. They are ideally looking for a commitment for a couple of years if possible, even if it's a one year up front commitment. They are looking for someone who will teach nice manners, be attentive, caring, and loving, proactive, and aware of their surroundings. It's important that you are not on your phone at all and that you focus on the children and the tasks at hand (playing, doing an educational activity, cleaning up, etc.) They are looking for someone who will teach right from wrong and someone who is discerning and mature.
Monday through Friday, 12 PM - 6 PM + Flexibility to come an occasional earlier time, one morning or evening (always with notice)
About the Children
girl, age 6 - She's in first grade 8 AM - 3 PM with some days until 4:30 PM. She has after school three days (pick up is crosstown on 10th Avenue). She's talkative, opinionated, and very funny. She picks up what's going on around her. She pushes the boundaries as to what she can get away with. Ex: She may say,"Mommy says I can watch Nick Jr." if she's not allowed to. She's a little bit more reserved and cerebral. She loves arts and crafts. girl, age 2 - She'll be 2 in December. She's very talkative. She's babbling and talking in full sentences. She'll tell you what she wants to eat and when she's ready for a nap. She's more physical. They are both bright. They both love to read, draw with markers. They love setting up their stuffed animals and imaginative play with them.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the 1 1/2-year-old has preschool, 9 AM - 12 PM. Pick her up in Midtown East, take the Express bus home down second avenue, and give her a snack. Then she'll have a nap. Wake up, engage her in play. Meanwhile, mom helps to split up the responsibilities, so if you're with the little one, she'll pick up the 3-year-old. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, meet at home at 12 PM. The position overall is mostly with the almost 2-year-old. Additional responsibilities include light housekeeping (folding the girls' laundry), wiping down the table, or cleaning crumbs from the dining room table. Motivate the girls to help clean up after activities. There's some travel later in the afternoon to get the 6-year-old girl and then you'll be with both girls typically for 30-60 minutes at the end of day. Mom will often make dinner. Occasionally help (chop onions, dice garlic etc. occasionally).
The family is interviewing asap and the position can start asap as well.
1-2 years ideally
