We have a family new to UWS (from France!) with a really sweet 9-year-old girl looking for their first SmartSitter! They are looking for someone caring, smart, proactive, dynamic, and a strong role model for the girl. The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 3-7 PM, plus flexibility one night per week to stay until 11PM. It's $25/hour gross for 18-20 hours/week. The position will begin as soon as possible, with interviews starting right away! Mannies should apply!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The sitter should be caring, smart, proactive, dynamic, and strong! Someone athletic and active who can keep up with her. Someone with a sunny and bright disposition. Someone who loves to sing and perform is a plus! Someone super safety conscious, i.e. holding her hand on subway. Someone comfortable and confident in NYC who can get the girl equally excited about being here. Commitment is super super important as mom travels a lot and is relying on their SmartSitter to be there for them!
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 3-7 PM. Flexibility to help with full days when school is out. There might be a possibility for a couple of overnights!
About the Children
Girl (9)- She likes gymnastics, swimming, tennis, hip hop dancing, and musical theater! She is very sweet, caring and creative! She is very smart and can be very helpful. She can be a tester at times, but really follows the rules. She does really well in school and want to do well. She can get frustrated easily if she doesn't understand something right away, but they are working on it. She is so open and loving. They moved from Paris in the fall!
The sitter will be responsible for school pick up, taking the child on the East Side and take her to her after school activities (could be swimming or gym, etc), help her do homework, and heat up meals for her that have already been prepared. The sitter should also coordinate the child's playdates and school schedule. They have a strict no screens policy and want her to see the world beyond phones.
