About the Children
girl, 3.5 - She is in school during the week in a 3's program. She loves to talk, and is a clear, concise communicator. girl, almost 2 - She can take a bit of time with communication, but looooves to be talkative. boy, 7 months - He is a very happy baby. Super cuddly, taking lots of naps. They are all great kids, active, have a lot of energy. The girls love making art, painting, coloring, as well as reading books/ having books read to them.
The main responsibilities for this role are being a mother's helper, keeping the kiddos engaged while mom's cooking, and helping to clean up after dinner. Mom will handle all food prep, but sometimes the girls will want to join in and help, so at those times (and at others), Mom may ask for help with feeding and holding/cuddling the baby. She will be around/in the building most of the time, and available to be a resource. The family also lives right by Central Park and the girls LOVE to head over for an adventure, and to play on the swings and slides. They also love hide and seek, dance parties, and quick, easy art projects!
COVID-wise, the family all had it in February of this year - all had mild cases, and have been given the safe all-clear by their doctor to return to work. Grandma lives close and is in their bubble and has been fully vaccinated. They are all taking precautions, double masking when outdoors, washing hands, etc. Mom does take public transit to/from work, however always with precautions. They don’t typically wear masks at home, but are happy to be open and communicating with their person, and if the nanny wants to wear mask inside, that's fine. They are also fine with someone who needs to take public transit to reach them. Someone open to getting vaccinated would be great but isn't necessary.
At least six months to a year, if not longer!
