The loveliest Prospect Heights family is back after their long-term relationship with a SmartSitter and looking for a new part-time sitter. They are one of our first ever families, too! The core schedule is 3-4 days/week, from 3:30-7/7:30 PM, ideally Monday through Thursday. They have two lovely boys, 12 and 16, who are really sweet. The youngest loves soccer and the oldest is their resident artist! It's $25/hour for 8-12 hours/week. The position will begin after Labor Day!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
What would be really key is someone who loves to get physical and can keep one very active kid busy while motivating a less active kid who needs to move more. Someone really confident and engaging who can keep the boys occupied and happy. Someone who can be mindful of the boys' time and whether they have homework or not. Someone who will go outside with them on nice days and run around! Someone comfortable in the kitchen. Their former SmartSitter was beloved and always found a way to reinforce the family's values by appealing to their logic and really understanding.
The core schedule is 3-4 days/week, from 3:30-7/7:30 PM, ideally Monday through Thursday.
About the Children
Boy, 12- He plays soccer and is super sweet! Boy, 16- He is an artist! They are both sweet and kind.
The sitter will assist with a combination of taking the youngest to and from soccer, helping with the boys' dinner prep and laundry, helping the kids' with homework, and really being a right hand to mom who will be working from home. The meal prep would be very basic for the family (chopping vegetables or prepping the meal for the kids) and occasionally throwing in a load or two of mom and dad's stuff, however largely pertaining to the kids.
through December 2019, and potentially longer
