Are you in Brooklyn and looking for a new after school position? Are you engaging, energetic, AND love to learn and explore with littles? A really love and veteran SmartFamily is back in Brooklyn for the remainder of the school year and looking for a new after school babysitter! They have two kids, 3 and 5, who are in school most mornings so their core need is in the afternoons. Their kids are energetic, sporty, and super curious. Their ideal person would help foster this curiosity and be happy to discover new things with them, learning and growing always. It's $25/hour gross for at least 20 hours/week (with the opportunity for Friday morning hours if you'd like!). The positionwill begin as soon as they find the right fit, so apply today!

The Ideal Sitter for this Job

Someone who has a background in early childhood education or a practical knowledge of their developmental milestones and achievements would be super amazing! Someone who could engage with them in a way in which they are challenged academically. Helping the boy with his structure and reinforcing his reading and writing skills. Someone comfortable practicing his words and practicing his chess. Engaging them in educational based play. Someone who can be fun, but also not afraid to be firm with the kids if needed and really explain to them why something is inappropriate.  A second language would be a plus, but not required. Someone socially conscious who can talk to the kids about these topics, answer their questions, and be on the same page as mom and dad, following their lead. They are super open and communicative.


The core schedule is Monday to Thursday, 1:30 to 6:30 PM. They are happy to add Friday mornings for 3-4 hours to help with the boy's virtual learning if you are looking for more hours.  They are willing to guarantee at least 20-24 hours/week.

About the Children

girl, 3- She really acts like a 5-year-old as she loves to emulate her brother. She is super sweet and playful. boy, 5- He is working on his manners and they use particular tactics to negotiate with him. He is a smart kid and really active and energetic. He plays the piano and basketball. He love to create! They are big on being outside and also sitting down and doing crafts. 


Start at 1:30 PM for time to travel to the school or stop by the apartment ahead of pickup at 2:30 PM. The family will provide an Uber to / from the apartment for their sitter to pick up the boy from school in Brooklyn Heights and bring him to our apartment in Clinton Hill. The girl goes to school one block from the apartment and so mom and dad will take turns picking her up. Stay with both children throughout the afternoon, prepare lunch and pull out outfits for school the next day, and help with light laundry for the kids once a week. When the kids are out of school, provide full-time care for them (the parents will provide dates in advance). Their schedules do not overlap so this is at minimum one month of full time work through the end of this school year over a few weeks at a time. 

Additional Information

Regarding Covid, they have been very careful about our interactions and safety during this pandemic and would expect the candidate to do the same. They've had no one in our household who has tested positive or been in contact with someone who has in recent times. They are wearing masks and social distancing strictly, and hope their person will be the same. They are comfortable with their person taking public transportation.
