We are looking for a five-day a week, part-time babysitter for our son (age 10/5th grade) and daughter (age 7/2nd grade). They are engaging, funny and energetic kids, and we are looking for a good match to take care of them after school. The job requires picking the kids up at school and taking them home and to after-school programs (their school is less than a block from our apartment). The primary duties include safely getting them around lower Manhattan, engaging with them, cooking their dinner and helping with homework. Some light house-keeping is requested. The hours would be roughly 2-7pm. Applicants with flexible schedules are encouraged to apply (some extended hours may be requested periodically). Applicants with a college degree are preferred. Work would start after Labor Day. Pay must be on the books. This is non-negotiable. Please do not apply if you are seeking off-the-books pay.

Job includes:

  • Bathing
  • Making meals
  • Feeding children
