The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone really engaging, easy going, and detail oriented. A confident and go with the flow kind of person is the most ideal for this family. Someone who is happy to pitch in and help in any way they can from making the kids dinner, to playing a fun game of Monopoly, to organizing and swapping out winter to summer wardrobes, to helping to organize a birthday party, etc. Someone who is confident with these ages groups and comfortable with multiples. Experience with special needs or behavioral issues is a huge plus! Someone really open and communicative who can follow the family's wishes. The ideal SmartSitter would be willing to stay in Millerton, NY for the full work period (weekdays, weekend, some combination). The family will provide an AirBnB for the sitters to stay in.
40 hours/week sporadically set between the sitter and family, but mostly Monday to Friday mornings 6-9 AM, then pick up in the afternoon to evenings. Weekend assistance will often be asked of the sitter. The pay prior is Saturday to Friday, just to note.
About the Children
The family has a 7-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy and they are both very sweet. They have the occasional sibling tift. It should also be noted that the boy has some behavioral issues. Often the sitter will be with one child, while the other SmartSitter is with the other, so they often tag team any sibling squabbles.
Responsibilities include spending quality time with kids at home after school and bringing them to after school activities. Spending quality time with the the child is huge for the family. Overnights are rare, but occasionally happen. The SmartSitter will be cooking food for the kids and to clean up the kitchen after. They may also be asked to do light chores when the children are at school or they have gone to bed, such as laundry and tidying up. The new sitter will be a real jack of all trades alongside the other SmartSitter.
