Do you know how to swim? Do you have your own transportation? We are in search of a Mother's assistant to help with the children and in general household assistance, 3 days a week, 23-25 hours/wk. My husband often travels, so there will be opportunities for additional hours during his time of travel. Monday 8:00 - 3:30 Wednesday 8:00 - 3:30 Thursday 8:00 - 4:30 *these are the current summer hours. Once school starts start time is 7:30 am (sharp), same end hours. I can be flexible in the days, except Monday & Thursday as I have a standing weekly appointment on those days. The primary care will be for my son (18 months), with very little interaction with the older children as they are due to start school on 8/28. We need someone loving, patient and confident in their ability. Someone that will get them out of the house for some fresh air and play. There will be occasions where you will drive the children to and/or from school or after school activities. So a clean driving record is appreciated. As well as in general light house keeping. We have a swimming pool and I would expect my child/children to enjoy the pool supervised and assisted swimming with the 18 month old. So you MUST be able to swim. Are you able to communicate well? My son is learning new words all the time now, he will need to be spoken to and read to during the day to sharpen his language skills. Please contact me for a face to face meeting/interview.
