We are looking for an energetic afternoon babysitter to pick up our 8 and 10 yr old from school, take them to after school activities, help them with homework, and prepare/give them dinner. Aliana is entering 5th grade and is sweet, funny, and independent. Jakey is entering 2nd grade and is silly, energetic boy who loves to play nerf guns and who thrives on positive feedback. The babysitter should have several years of experience working with kids and be able to set firm boundaries while still having a lot of fun. We are looking for coverage Mon - Fri (Friday can be optional) from 3 - 6:30 and ideally with flexibility to stay later on the occasional evening or babysit for weekend date nights. Sitter should love playing with kids, be willing to do light housework (unload and load dishwasher, make school snack, make sure all toys are put away before leaving, etc), and be willing to prepare simple meals for the kids' dinner. Babysitter should have their own car, clean driving record and ideally be able to commit for the school year (through May/June). Can pay either by check or credit card-- whichever is preferred.
