A lovely Williamsburg family is looking for a new after school sitter for their almost 8-year-old daughter! She goes to school in the East Village and is a fun, vivacious, and super creative kid. They are looking for someone who is fun, creative, engaging, and easy going. The core schedule is Wednesday to Friday, from 2:30-6:30 PM, with some flexibility to assist later and even for full days when school is out (they already have the calendar!). It's $25/hour gross for 12 hours/week guaranteed, plus a monthly metrocard. The position will begin in the weeks to come with interviews taking place immediately!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone really understanding and warm who can be mindful of the challenging transition. Someone who can assist with her homework and the inevitable testing that will be coming with 3rd grade. Someone easy going and warm who can bond with the girl and help them make this transition from being in after school programs to having a part-time sitter. Someone who can be a big sibling type and a real confidant. Someone super playful and creative is ideal for her so they can relate to her and her independence. A sitter who is down for anything will connect so well with her as she loves to go on adventures and do fun stuff with is most important! Someone comfortable with dogs as they have two! The oldest might bark at first, but she usually warms up pretty quick.
The core schedule is Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 2:30-6:30 PM. Flexibility to assist with full days for school closures and can be flexible with the end time on occasion. They are guaranteeing the 20 hours/week!
About the Children
girl, almost 8- She is bright, active, funny, VERY artistic and loves to draw, read, and dance. She is super into anime and loves to dress as she feels. She loves to be active whether be creatively or physically. She is so dynamic! She is wise beyond her years and as an only child has spent a lot of time with adults so she is more mature than other kids her age. We would love to have someone who would be interested in these things but who could also help her focus on her homework each day.
The SmartSitter will pick up the girl in Manhattan on 20th Street between 1st and 2nd and take her to the playground right by school or some other decompressing activity to have fun with her. They will then bring her home to Williamsburg (two stops away from the 1st Ave L train at 14th St, 6 blocks from school), focus on homework, then relax until mom or dad gets home. Potentially letting the dogs out into the backyard when you get home, but no other responsibilities.
