Part Time, starting ASAP

2 children: 8 years, 5 years

We are looking for a regular after-school babysitter to pick up our two boys from school at 3, bring them home, about a 15-minute walk, and look after them until 6. Ideally there would be some flexibility about working full days occasionally when school is closed (but not on major holidays). Housekeeping and kitchen responsibilities would be limited to picking up after the kids, afternoon snacks, and sometimes getting dinner on the table. The boys will have after-school enrichment classes (TBD) at their school for an hour after school on one or two days of the week. My husband works from home, so will be in the neighborhood if not the apartment in the afternoon, and could help facilitate a play date for one of the boys, etc. Our boys have a lot of energy, and would appreciate someone who can keep up with them, is patient with their many questions, and can be consistent and compassionate. We also need a person willing and able to assist and encourage our 3rd grader with homework. Communication, flexibility, and good judgement are all very important to us. We want to be able to check in and be updated freely, and consulted when the need arises. We have a (very friendly) Welsh Corgi, so we need someone comfortable with and not allergic to dogs.
