The Ideal Sitter for this Job

Someone who is intuitive to the boys' emotional needs and is warm, kind, and caring. Someone communicative and open to being a part of a team with the parents as they find what is working best for their family and especially the older boy. Someone patient and proactive. Someone smart and interesting who has experience with these ages. Someone easy going and go with the flow who has a really helpful and proactive attitude. They are going through a lot of transition as mom starts back up at work, so they are looking for someone super understanding. Someone who can help the older boy focus on his homework and work on his attentiveness. Someone who can break down the process for him and help him to get through it. It's not difficult homework for him, but he needs some help focusing and getting it done.


The core schedule is a FLEX 2-3 days/week, from 3-6 PM. They are flexible for the right candidate!

About the Children

boy, 7- He is going into second grade and can be inattentive at time. He is the more emotional of the two kids and sometimes struggles with his self confidence. boy, 5- He is a really sweet boy and going into kindergarten. Both are such good kids and really bond with their sitters. They are generally quite well behaved.


Picking them up from school a few blocks from each other and taken to activities and playdates. Straightening up after play time and meals is huge; they are really looking for someone proactive. If you are comfortable picking up the CSA share and can prep some of the food for the family for the week, they are happy to add hours.
