Part Time, starting ASAP

Southwest Waterfront
3 children: 6 years, 3 years, 3 months

Hello, I am looking for a live-in part-time assistance to help in the mornings and evenings with my children, and primarily with a 3 month-old infant. I am offering room and board in exchange, and possibly a small salary, should we both be happy to expand the scope of work. I am looking for someone who can help me with the children before and after hours during some days of the week. This would be a PART TIME, LIVE IN position (approx. 7am-9am and 5pm-8pm some, not every day of the week. I may not need any assistance on weekends. Approximately 15 hours/week.) I have some flexibility and other assistance, so the precise arrangement can be developed together with you. Assistance required would include helping with getting the children ready for school/daycare, walking distance pickup and drop offs, the housekeeping, meal preparation. This would be a great job for an energetic student, in a very good, central location in DC. We are within a walking distance of Green, Orange, Blue, Silver, and Yellow metro lines. Own room and bathroom. I would prefer someone who is interested in child development. Primary language English or other both fine (French, Spanish, or Arabic preferred). Position would start in October or earlier. Hoping for at least one year, but 6mo. availability would be the minimum. Please let me know if interested, and we can set up a trial/interview.

Job includes:

  • Driving children in parent's car
  • Bathing
  • Bedtime Routine
  • Making meals
  • Feeding children
