The Ideal Sitter for this Job

Someone really kind, loving, and connected with the family. Someone who is structured, but gentle with their approach to the kids. They want the kids to be tolerant and kind people, so someone who can really be confidants to the kids and exercise excellent judgement with kids. Someone who can be a real partner with mom and dad, who will likely be working from home for the foreseeable future. Someone empathetic to all the changes they have been through this year with school. Covid, and their recent move. Someone proactive and understanding. Someone who can really assist with the kids with their school work.Someone who has reliable transportation and a valid drivers license. In better times, they are within walking distance of MetroNorth and school. 


The core schedule is Monday to Friday, 11-5 PM. Flexibility to assist with more hours up to full-time is necessary in case the girls are out of school. They can guarantee 30 hours/week.

About the Children

girls 7 and 5- They are super sweet girls and play so well together They are well mannered girls. They have been so resilient. They are in school in the mornings at the moment until 11 PM.


Walking to their school to pick them up and bringing them home for lunch. Helping with their lunch prep and tidying up after. Helping the girls with their school work and making sure everything is sorted for school. Having fun with them and doing fun activities both indoors and out. Someone who can be a real confidant to the girls and helping mom and dad who are working remotely at the moment. Assisting with the girls laundry and meal prep is super helpful. Occasionally picking up groceries would be great, too. Driving would be required to take the girls to activities when that is available again, though you can use the family's car.

Additional Information

Mom and dad are both currently working from home. They have been working with their SmartSitter who was commuting by car from Brooklyn to Scarsdale
