This sweet and loving family in Hoboken is looking for a new after-school sitter to care for their two children, ages 4 & 7! To get to their home, it's just 12 minutes on the PATH from Christopher Street and they live a 13 min walk from the Hoboken PATH Station. Family will pay for transportation costs and will guarantee pay for 15 hours a week even though schedule is for 12 hours, so flexibility to stay later will be very helpful. Kids are sweet and active! Apply if you’d be a great fit!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The families number one priority is finding someone who loves their children. The kids had a full time nanny who had been working with them for years so they developed a close relationship with her. A new sitter who is able to bond with them will be really appreciated. They’d love someone who is responsible and can be self-reliant, as they both work busy jobs and aren’t always available. Someone who’s confident in their decision making skills would be great.

About the Children
Boy, 4 in early September - He’s super adventurous and a little on the rambunctious side, he loves to run around! He doesn’t like to be cooped up to long so a sitter who feels good about keeping him entertained and having fun will be great. He’s entering pre-school! Girl, 7 - She’s on the quieter side and may come off shy at first but will warm up and be chattier in no time! She loves being helpful. Both children are very well mannered and well spoken. They love going to the park and just having fun!
You’d pick up the son from school which is walking distance from their daughter’s school where you’d pick her up afterwards. The kids don’t have any after-school activities planned as of yet but may be involved in some things later, however all activities will be in walking distance of their schools and home. Meal prep would be involved as would doing the children’s laundry.
For a long-term candidate, this family is offering a week paid vacation. The week between Christmas and New Year will be paid time off. Family is offering to pay for transportation time or costs. There will be some school holidays for which the sitter would need to work full days, and those will be discussed with the sitter upfront. This position starts in early-mid October
Through the Fall, and ideally through the school year
