Part Time, starting ASAP

Southwest Portland (West Portland Park)
2 children: 10 years, 10 years
$15/hr for for 6 hours per week

Hi, Our twin boys are feeling too big for aftercare and are asking for a part-time nanny instead. Their bus home from Ainsworth Elementary will arrive at Markham Elementary at 2:45, and we are a very short drive away. Once home, they will need a little time to unwind and have a snack, and they might have some homework to do or an instrument to practice. It's possible that they might have a lesson, playdate, or appointment that would require you taking them, or picking them up elsewhere on certain days. These guys are in a Spanish immersion program, and we are hoping to find someone fluent that can help with homework and to speak with them in Spanish most of the time. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45-4:45 will be consistent, with at least one Friday per month needed as well (I will be able to share which Fridays as my work schedule develops). You would need to be willing to have a simple background check, clean driving record, and in general be an upbeat person that will engage with our kids and be a good role model. Must either be first aid/CPR certified or be willing to become certified. Thanks for your interest! Jenn
