Are you looking for a new exciting adventure with a wonderful family?! Do you have experience as a live-in caregiver with early school aged kids? We have the loveliest veteran SmartFamily looking for a new live in caregiver to join their "pod"! As they are so lovely, I will let them do the talk: "We are looking for full-time live-in care for help with our two daughters, 6 and 4. We are normally based in Manhattan (UES), but also spend time outside the city in Carmel, NY, and at our home in Rockport, Maine. We are anticipating a fairly unpredictable fall and are looking for someone who is comfortable moving with us between these places based on safety and general peacefulness of life. We are a nature-loving family who enjoy the outdoors as well as quiet times inside mostly doing art or science projects. Our daughters are curious and kind with big hearts. They have their moments but are very close and play very well together most of the time! We value thoughtfulness, kindness and respect, and seek to create a positive and peaceful family life. We are trying to raise our kids with a sense that they are part of a greater system, and that the healthy upkeep of our community and earth is part of our responsibility. Our ideal sitter is someone who really loves this age-group and is ready to go with the flow in terms of these different locations. We like peace. We also try to have fun! If this person could swim and drive that would also be great. We're near the ocean in Maine and by a pond in Carmel. We also have a dog, hypoallergenic labradoodle. He's almost nine and very mellow." The position will begin in September with FaceTime meetings taking place as soon as possible! This is a fun and exciting opportunity not to be missed! Apply today :)
