Do love to read and run around with toddlers?! Are you a respectful and calm communicator who has experience working alongside parents? A lovely new family in Carrol Gardens is looking for their first ever babysitter for their active and fun 1.5-year-old daughter. You'd be working alongside a SAHM and dad who is working from home. They are a really laid back family who follow the RIE methods with their daughter, so someone who is aligned with them in this way and isn't too rigid or strict is best for them. Their daughter loves to read (and we mean ALOT) and like to run around so someone really active and engaging is most ideal, too! It's $25/hour gross for 20 hours/week guaranteed. They are looking for someone to make an initial commitment of 2-3 months and then potentially longer if it is a good fit! This is NOT one to be missed. They are so lovely and looking forward to welcoming someone new into the fold with their family.
