The Ideal Sitter for this Job

About the Children

The SmartSitter will pick him up from school in the West Village and bring him home to Brooklyn on weekday afternoons. Pickup times vary, depending on the boy's after school activities. Sometimes doing homework in the library at school and hopping on the subway home, which is an easy trip. Or he can come straight home and do his homework there, and then play until dinnertime. No evening/night/weekend help needed, really, and NO meal prep. They occasionally let their sitter leave a bit earlier by 6 PM, or so, however they will always compensate for at least 15 hours/week.
