Someone who is objective and smart and understands that this is a professional relationship (not that they shouldn't be loving, of course). Someone with good judgment and a calm demeanor. Since we do use some specific behavior techniques with the 11-year-old, it would be helpful if the candidate has had some experience with behavioral techniques and/or an interest in learning about this.

    $20/hour

    We have an amazing new after school/part-time position available with the most wonderful UES family. They are (sadly) parting with their current SmartSitter who is leaving early June. They are super sweet and kind, and we can not rave more about them. If you love being silly and even have some Star Wars knowledge under your belt, this is for you!

    The family is looking for someone who can have a good time with them and keep things fun and light. Someone who can be a new big-sibling type who is responsible, proactive, kind, fun, engaging, and communicative to join their team. The SmartSitter would work in tandem with mom occasionally who works from home. They are looking for someone who knows the delicacies that come with working with siblings who are close in age, however are experiencing different milestones in life. Someone with an early childhood/education background is a huge plus!

    The Ideal Sitter for this Job

    Someone loving, fun, kind, responsible, and most importantly, communicative. The family is very open and honest, and in turn looking for someone who can reciprocate that. 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.
    They are looking for someone who can go with the flow as sometimes messes will get made and things will be out of place, yet who can be proactive to clean up those messes with the kids to generally help make the parents lives easier. 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!

    Schedule

    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.
