Are you fun, engaging, and mindful in your interactions with children? Are you looking for a long-term position and to form a bond with a new family through the upcoming of the school year?! A really lovely long-time veteran SmartFamily is looking for a new after school sitter to assist with their 4-year-old daughter and work alongside another SmartSitter who will be with their 6-year-old son. It's $25/hours gross for 15 hours/week guaranteed, plus a metrocard. The position will begin after Labor Day with interviews taking place immediately by phone or FaceTime.
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone warm and friendly, yet firm when need be. If the kids are getting out of hand, they need someone who can step in and take charge in a calm and directed way to refocus the kids. Someone who has experience with special needs is a huge plus, but this is not required. Someone warm and loving who can also connect with the kids and make them happy while making sure they are structured and maintain the boundaries in a friendly and light way. The language they use is so important in this aspect as well, "I didn't like the way that felt with my body when you were rougher."Someone confident who can take control even around mom who has absolute trust in her sitters
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 3-6 PM. Flexibility to assist with later nights or full days is a pus!
