About the Children
Boy, 4 - He just turned 4 this May, and is a confident and curious boy! He's been going to school for the last year, really enjoying it. Loves to be with other kids, and go on adventures outdoors. He also is really into puzzles and mental challenges. He likes to balance being physical, but also testing his mind and solving problems. Boy, almost 9 - A healthy and happy boy, super active, and loves sports and challenges, as well as board games! Girl, 11 - Classic oldest sibling, she is a happy and engaging kiddo. Very into art (drawing specifically) and reading. She loves to talk and socialize, specifically, about art and books. She's very mature for her age. The older kids are playing instruments in school, and love to participate in games with the family. They are much more independent, but there may be logistic support help needed, which will depend on how their schedules align. All three go to school in Brooklyn Heights!
The main responsibility will be with the youngest boy, engaging with him and doing various projects, playtime, reading and activities with him. Along with this, the family could use help from time to time with their two older children, occasionally bringing them to and from activities as well as engaging with them on a higher and more emotional level. Homework help is not needed, and the family would love someone who will let the kiddos guide the afternoon, from the park, to a game, to quiet reading time, and beyond. The family has a housekeeper as well who's been with them for awhile, and the nanny and housekeeper will work together/tag team as needed to help balance all three kids' schedules. There's no need for excessive house work, but guiding the kids to keep their areas clean and organized would be appreciated!
COVID-wise, Mom and Dad as well as their housekeeper are vaccinated already, and are looking for a candidate who is vaccinated as well!
$25-30/hour gross + PTO, sick time, and a monthly metrocard.
Through the school year with potential to extend!
