Helping with afterschool pick up and eventually taking them to afterschool activities and playdates when those resume. At the moment, mom and dad are working rom home, so they may be around. The sitter will help with taking the boys to the park or for walks, doing fun activities inside, doing arts and crafts, and generally keeping them engaged and keeping up with their high energy levels! A bit of help to tidy up after meals and playtime and help with some meal prep, too. There may be some help with remote learning given by the preschool.

Additional Information

Mom and dad are working from home at the moment and the family has been pretty strictly social distancing since March. Mom was sick right at the beginning in March and was unable to get a Covid test then, but has since gotten a positive antibody test. They've been healthy since then. They go for walks to the park, currently have a summer SmartSitter who takes the boys out for play in the park, and are close to Brooklyn Bridge Park which has been largely empty during the week. They go to the grocery store one or twice a week wearing masks and washing their hands strictly. The boys have masks, too, though that is a challenge at times.
