The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone kind, communicative, proactive and helpful, experienced, mature, and super active, but also comfortable communicating and asking questions if they arise. CRP and first aid certification is strongly preferred. Someone who is comfortable running around with two young kids. Someone who is comfortable working alongside a parent and communicating with them throughout the day and week. Experience working with multiple children and can manage the dynamics and occasional sibling rivalry between two boys close in age is best. Someone who can split their attention between the two kids in similar capacities is paramount.
The core schedule is 2-3 flex days/week (ideally Monday, Wednesday, and/or Friday, but again FLEX), from 8 AM to 5 PM. Flexibility to assist with additional hours is a plus! The family can also be flexible from time to time with the sitter!
About the Children
boy, 4- He is active, full of energy, loves to be outside, but can sometimes be too into technology. He really enjoys being out with his friends and playing sports. He loves attention! He is very well behaved in school and for sitters, but he likes to test the limits! He can be a picky eater. boy, 1- He is a happy and easy going guy. He's very pleasant and happy to be included in play with his older brother who isn't always as open to it. He likes to get messy and be at the park!
The SmartSitter will be working in tandem with one parent who is home to help with the weekly routine and sometimes out and about running errands, etc. They would love a sitter who is creative with activities and can keep their kids away from screens as much as possible. The SmartSitter will assist with meal prep and laundry for the kids. A person with new and healthy ideas to introduce a healthier routine for the kids is a huge plus! Tidying up after meals and play time is paramount as is a provocativeness during down time to be a second and helping hand to the family.
