In the afternoon, the sitter will take care of school pick up, take them to activities or the park, organize playdates, give them a snack, give them both meals at the end of the day, occasionally help with bedtime and baths. The older girl is likely to have more homework so some homework support is paramount as she gets older. Prepping meals for the family and helping keep tabs on supplies for the kids and at home is necessary. Occasional help with the laundry and tidying up as needed to keep things in their place, etc. Occasionally, the sitter will come early to help get the children ready for the day, give them breakfast, and tidy up before leaving. Or come for full days with notice when the girls are out of school to cover the day while the parents are working. Overall the sitter will help both children with their developmental milestones and share those with the parents.
