This sweet family in Windsor Terrace is looking for a part-time sitter to help out every Sunday while the parents have a date afternoon/evening. The family may not need someone every Sunday, but are willing to guarantee the income for the right fit. Their son is very sweet and passionate, and has some sensory issues that are in the process of being officially diagnosed. He tests authority at times, so someone patient, unfazed, and maternal will be the best fit for this family. Please apply if this sounds like you!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
As mentioned above, their son has some sensory issues that are in the process of being officially diagnosed (possibly ADHD). Because of this, while he is a very sweet boy, he is known to test boundaries, so someone who is very patient, empathetic, understanding, and has a maternal instinct will connect well with him. The parents understand that he can be difficult at times and really want to find a sitter who is able to deal with their son in a loving and patient way, and create boundaries when they are needed. They are looking for someone kind, who can really understand that their boy can be anxious at times, and someone who won’t take it personally that he’s slow to warm up.
About the Children
Boy, 5: He is a very energetic little boy who has a passion for all vehicle! He says he dreams about diggers, cars, trucks and boats. This amuses the parents as neither the mom nor her husband share that passion. He loves to play outside and relishes new experiences. He has few fears and also particularly loves music and dancing!
Arrive at 3pm most Sundays to just play and have fun with the family's 5-year-old son! You'll go to the playground, play around the apartment, and do some light meal prep for his dinner (he loves chicken nuggets!).
The family would love to start this position ASAP! Please only apply if you fit the sitter description, as the family would really love to find someone who works well with their son. Sitters with experience studying child psychology or early childhood education have worked well with this family in the past!
Short-term, ideally through December
