The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Having some level of Spanish is paramount as the kids are currently learning English. Someone energetic and engaging who can really get them involved. Someone who is easy going, but can get the kids involved in activities as they do not often initiate them themselves. Someone who can keep them away from screens and exploring their neighborhood! Someone really warm, loving, and understanding who can connect with them! Experience working with kids with ADHD and/or anxiety is helpful. Student’s majoring in psychology, social work, child development, or education a plus.
The core schedule is Monday to Thursday from 3 to 6:30/7 PM.
About the Children
boy, 13 and girl, 10- They are both so sweet and charming. They love attention! They were recently adopted last summer from South America, so a lot is new in their lives. When they are challenged, they often regress a bit and into themselves and can present as a younger child developmentally. The family approaches this with actions and strategies that are at the age-appropriateness of the age they are acting.
Picking kids up at 3 PM from school in Fort Green, then brining them to our home in Park Slope, and caring for them at home until 6:30/7 PM. Helping with homework and keeping them happy and engaged. Sometimes working alongside mom who works from home, too!
They are a really sweet family and looking for someone amazing to join their team and ease their kids into NYC life!
