Are you fun, reliable, responsible, and trustworthy?!
We have an upcoming after school position in Woodside, Queens, with a really cute 6-year-old girl. They are looking for someone to help with the after school routine on Monday to Thursday, communicate any school updates to the parents, and occasionally attend teacher meetings and pass along any updates, etc., to the parents.
It's $25/hour gross for 14 hours/week guaranteed. This position will begin as soon as they find the right fit in January, with an initial FaceTime meeting this week!
Their ideal sitter will model positive behavior - be energetic, happy, demonstrate positive interactions. Offer no more than two choices at a time for activities like reading or legos, coloring or making a picture, watching the Big TV or iPad. Model positive communication - demonstrate willingness to listen and patience to be heard. Ask the girl questions using a social emotional intelligent approach. Demonstrate respect through positive verbal communication. Absolutely be present with her and demonstrate direct eye contact, participate in conversation and activities that the Anita wants to do.
And very importantly, raise things to the parents' attention when it happens, not long after the incident - Alert them about red flags before they become fires. Raise things to their attention at the end of each day from child behavior, medical needs, etc. and give me the complete picture, not just part of the story.
They want to avoid all negative language, threatening language, or demands - eliminate sentences that start with, “You should...” “Mommy says....” “Mommy will get mad if...” “I’m taking away...” They do not want someone to disengage or do their own personal work when with the child- If she wants some personal time alone, then use that time to wash dishes, put away toys, or review her homework. And finally, to not administer medication without consulting the parents or a physicians first. Training from the parent(s) will be provided in all cases!
It is also very important that their new sitter is fully committed as both mom and dad have little to no flexibility with their schedules. This semester is typically a very busy one for them and longer with less breaks than the fall, so they are looking for someone dedicated and creative who can join their team!
The core schedule is Monday to Thursday, from 2:20-6 PM.Learn more about this job
