The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone super reliable, punctual, positive, and flexible who has time management. A true helping hand is paramount! Someone who loves cooking and can involve the boy as one of their previous sitters did and he really loved this. Someone health conscious who can share these ideals with the boy as well. They are really looking for someone who is invested in their time with the boy and wants to bond with him. Someone comfortable tidying up after the day to make it a bit easier on mom and dad. They are really looking for someone who can help him make the big transitions into school and can make it a fun and calming time when it's time. Someone who can help him recharge and have a nice time to get ready for the next day. Occasionally working alongside dad who works from home at times.
Monday to Thursday, 3-7 PM, with flexibility to stay later 1 night/week. If they have a really wonderful person, they are happy to extend more hours when there is the opportunity for school holidays, sick days, extra late nights, and even travel from time to time if you were interested!
