The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone super reliable, responsible, and city savvy. Someone understanding and committed who can join their team and joining their fold. someone outgoing and fun who can connect with the kids and other nannies and parents alike. They are aiming to make their home the ultimate oasis, so someone fun and engaging who is flexible and a constant source of enjoyment for the kids and also maintain a calm and centered presence for the kids during down times. An organized person with time management skills. Someone who is comfortable working alongside mom and making the afternoon go as smoothly as possible. They are going through a lot of change with the school transitions and parting ways with their full-time nanny. The subway can be jarring for the boy at times, so someone who can be quick on their feet and make the decision to call mom and get an uber. A really quick thinking and confident person is paramount. A background in childhood development, social work, or teaching is ideal. Great for someone interested in this field of special needs.
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 3-7 PM, with some flexibility on the ending time, once a week date nights, etc.
