We have a 10-year old girl, and we're looking for someone who will build a great relationship with her over the next few years, and who will enrich her life, teach her to cook more, help us with meals and running our household. This is a slightly-more-than-part-time position, and you will need your own car. We'd need you to pick our daughter up after school at 3:00 or 3:45 pm (depending on after-school activities) and care for her until 6:30 or 7 pm. We go out about one evening per week, usually until 9:00 pm. Additionally, we need help preparing family meals, running household errands, grocery shopping and sometimes walking our very friendly labradoodle, so some days can start earlier than 3:00 (we are flexible about which days that might be during the week). Overall it amounts to about 20-25 hours a week. We're looking for someone who will take our daughter to museums and parks, arrange playdates, and keep her amused and engaged. Reading and homework are key, as is cooking. Ideally you are extremely organized, tidy, and the kind of person who will notice that some area of the house needs sorting, or that we're out of cinnamon and add it to the grocery list.
