Are you a toddler whisperer? Do you love being helpful and having a great time with littles? A returning UWS family is looking for help two afternoons/week, Mondays and Wednesday, from 1 or 2 PM until 7 PM, with their 15-month-old and 5-year-old. The sitter will be working alongside mom to assist with the afternoon routine and round our the evening with dinner and bath time help! It's $25-30/hour gross for 12-14 hours/week! The position will begin as soon as they find the right fit!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The ideal candidate is organized, detail oriented, and fun-loving and has experience with both younger toddlers (15 months) and older toddlers (5 years old). Someone who is a team player and comfortable working alongside mom is paramount. Communication, flexibility, and intuition are huge for this role as well. It is important that the sitter is patient and gentle, yet can be assertive and able to help her navigate through transitions. These two days are the toughest for the older girl especially, so an understanding and warm approach is best. Most importantly, they are looking for someone who is super detail oriented and mindful of their children's allergies. The older girl has an EpiPen which they are happy to show someone how to use, and there is NO OUTSIDE FOOD allowed in the home to prevent any and all potential allergens from coming in. The sitter must be super cautious and thorough when reading labels and getting information about food before feeding the girl. This is truly of the utmost importance. Very good attention to personal hygiene is also important, so washing hands removing shoes, etc. when coming in is a must! The family is very big on open and honest communication at all times.
The core schedule is Mondays and Wednesday, from 1 or 2 PM until 7 PM. They have the flexibility to add hours on Friday if needed!
