The younger boy can have a hard time adjusting to a new person and is learning to trust people more. The family is working with him to be respectful at all times, and a SmartSitter who knows when to be "the authority figure" and when to let kids be kids, will be best suited for them. Someone who can encourage the kids to take responsibility and get their chores done and be independent people, etc. Someone with a background in early childhood development/psychology/social work who understands differences between ages and what they need (energies, goals, strategies, etc.) is ideal.

The family is looking for someone comfortable and laid back with this style of parenting. Again, being open and communicative with parents about what is happening and how the SmartSitter is settling in with the kids is very important to the family. Someone not afraid to get a little dirty and help them with science experiments, and who is going to treat them like little people rather than babies would be best. They are looking for someone to lead by example when it comes to being polite and being a good example. Being organized is essential.
    Someone with experience with meal planning and dinner prep for the kids. The family prefers to set a meal plan the week before so they can get all the ingredients the SmartSitter needs. They are happy to let their new sitter take the leas on this!

    To begin, the core schedule is Monday to Thursday or Friday, from 9-5/6 PM. In summer (6/29-8/18) while the kids are in camp, the schedule is Monday to Thursday or Friday, from 3 or 4-7 PM. From 8/21 to beginning of September, they will need extended help Monday to Friday, from 8:30-6:30 PM. From beginning of September to 9/22, the schedule is Monday to Friday, from 2 or 3-7 PM. Then the hours shift back to the core school year schedule: 2 flex days/week, from 2 or 3-7 PM; and Fridays, from 12 or 1-7 PM. Someone with flexibility to help later on occasion and with school holidays is paramount!
    Please note if you would prefer an earlier start to come in an hour before to help with dinner prep and the kid's laundry before pick up from camp or school.
