Part Time, starting ASAP

New York
1 child1: 2.5 years
$20/hr for for 6 hours per week

Looking for someone to pick up my toddler from pre-school and bring her home (13 blocks away via stroller walking, direct bus or subway) three days a week. We live in a 5th floor walk up and while she can walk up the stairs, when holding an adult's hand, you should be prepared to carry her up the last flight of stairs when it's been an especially tiring day! Our child loves the outdoors, is very active and loves exploring the natural world and getting into the mud, sticks and leaves. :) We would encourage you to spend time in the park (weather permitting) for at least some of the time between pick up and when we get home. She loves dancing, music and LOVES painting and drawing. Our child also has several severe food allergies, so we are looking for someone who is in tune with paying attention to details in terms of food preparation, food sharing, etc. We would also ask you to help with unpacking her school bag, cleaning her lunchbox and replacing any clothing/ bedding items needed for the following day. We are also open to someone who is available Wednesday/ Thursdays OR Thursdays only, if it's the right fit. However, our preference is to find someone for all three days.
