The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The family is looking for someone that they can all connect well with and who will keep the kids busy! Someone who is active and can be engaging and have fun with the kids. Someone with a license and clean driving record is a must. The kids are starting music classes so someone musically inclined would be great! A sitter who is creative, fun, and communicative will be perfect for the family.
Any 3 days of the week 2:30 - 8:00pm (Fridays sitter may come earlier and leave earlier)
About the Children
Girl, 6 - Started 1st grade, pretty active in terms of school, likes to do her homework by herself. Very talkative and mature for her age! She's a good communicator and sympathizer, very outgoing, likes to put on shows and dance and sing! Loves to cuddle and read. Boy, 8 - Not as into homework as his sister is, likes video games! He likes to swim and play on the playground. Has good friends at school and does martial arts! Both kids are well traveled and understand Greek! They can speak a little too. They love to be outside.
You'd be picking up the kids either from school or the bus stop that is right by the family's house. Once home you'll help them get their snacks, help with homework, and have fun with them! The family has a backyard and the kids also love going to play at the playground. They'll have after school activities sometimes, so you'll drive them to those using the family's care. Light meal prep for the kids will be involved and you can feel free to make something for yourself as well. Making a little extra for mom & dad would be very appreciated but not necessary. Both kids love to help cook. If you could throw the occasional load of the kids laundry into the wash they would love that.
This family travels a lot and is open to the idea of their sitter joining them occasionally! They are flexible with their schedule and are open to adding on more hours and having their sitter come earlier in the mornings before the kids come back from school to do light housework. As of now the guaranteed rate is $500/week but that may change with added hours. There is also a possibility of this turning into a 5 day/week job for the right fit!
$30/hour ($500/week guarenteed)
Ideally through the school year
