About the Children
Girl, 4 (5 in October) - These two dads have raised their niece for the past few years and are in the process of adoption! She's had an amazing transition into the family so far. She's entering kindergarten and has a lot of friends at school and loves playdates! She has a lot of energy and loves running around the playground. Also into "girly" stuff like doing her nails. All-around a super loving and fun girl!
You'd be picking up their 4-year-old from school a block and a half away from their apartment, taking her to Spanish class on the UES twice a week and to gymnastics at Chelsea Piers once a week. On days when there's free time after school, the family would love you to take her to the playground to have fun, she loves the monkey bars! Once home, you'll prep some healthy meals for her, then bathtime and getting ready for bed. The position would also include some light housekeeping as it pertains to the child and just keeping things organized.
Flexibility for extra hours (date nights, coverage on school holidays, etc)
Ideally through the school year
