About the Children

boy, 3-He is a really social guy, so he is missing his friends and being able to be with them. They live right next to the park and bringing trucks and taking long walks when able to.


Someone warm and kind who can create regular structure for him. Someone really confident and comfortable with this age group. Someone who can intuitively move him through the sequence of the day in a kind and directed way. He is silly so someone who can match his energy. He thrives off of attention, so someone super super engaging who really wants to make this time special and happy. Someone who can create the boundaries and consistency that he typically thrives on.

Additional Information

While one mom will be working from home during this time, his other mom will be staying at another apartment as she is a doctor who will begin working on the front lines of the pandemic. They are all very sad that she will be gone for some now, so they need someone super understanding, sunny, and bright to bring some warmth to their lives right now. Mom who is a doctor will not be around at all or in the home during this time.
