We are looking for a caregiver for our children, but also a friend for our family. We have 3 boys (11 months, 5 and 8 years old). We need help keeping this lively household organized! Main duties will be caring for the baby during the day, and then helping with the big kids as well during after school hours. Rarely would you have sole care of all three kids without me present. I am finishing grad school and am in and out studying and working throughout the day. We encourage you to explore the city with the kids (within reason), go to parks and museums, and enjoy outdoor time. Our boys love sports, music, board games, and reading. Our home can be loud and boisterous but is always full of fun and love. Our ideal candidate will love and appreciate boys - including their energy and sensitivity. Experience managing siblings or acting as referee will come in handy! As baby is a good napper, we would appreciate help with laundry and light housekeeping during the day, also help with meal prep as needed. Bonus if you have your own transportation and can help with drop offs and pickups. Ideally, you would start ASAP. Our ideal hours would be Monday through Friday 12-6pm, with 2-3 mornings per week as well. We are flexible on exact hours and which mornings, willing to guarantee 30 hours/week and offer more when needed. Open to students if schedule fits. Non-smoking, drug-free; up to date vaccinations or willing to get them. Must speak fluent English please. *Note: Prefer to pay different hourly rate depending on how many kids are home! e.g. $25 for 3 kids and $22 for one or two.
