Hiring a part time caretaker starting Tue, Sep 15 at 10:06 AM (flexible) in North Center - $20/hr

Posted 5 months ago by a parent

Part Time, starting Tue, Sep 15 at 10:06 AM
Chicago - North Center
2 children: 11,9

I am just trying to gauge interest in a situation where a female student would get room and board and $100 a week in exchange for 10 hours a week of helping out with a 6th grader and 4th grader. The kids would get themselves off to school and home since school is only a couple of blocks away and they can walk. The job would mainly be dropping the kids off at activities a few times a week before we get home from work, and watching them at night during the week or weekend,if my husband and I go out, which is usually once every other week. Any hours over 10 would be paid $20 an hour if you agree you want to work over the ten because you are available. Otherwise, we would get another sitter. We have a large house with a very private basement bedroom with its own entrance. There is also a full bathroom and large basement entertainment room that is not used very much by the family. The kitchen is upstairs and would be shared. There is a mini-fridge in the basement. We have had au pairs for the last several years, which has worked out great, but we are looking to save some money, as we only use our current au pair around 15 hours a week and she is paid to work up to 45 hours, and the kids are old enough to take care of themselves for the most part, but just need rides places and someone to be around random days they have off of school, etc. They are really fun kids and pretty good (for the most part :) This wouldn't be until Sep 1st, but just trying to get feedback from sitters on the proposal. We are a 5 minute walk to the Brown line and there is fun stuff all around. Only a 15 minute walk to Wrigley. Our last au pair that was with us for a couple of years and still lives in the city would be available as a reference.

To find babysitters in your area, start with a babysitter or nanny search by date or post a job to find available babysitters and nannies. Then, use custom filters to find a baby sitter in your neighborhood with your qualifications such as a background check, child and infant CPR certification, babysitter with car, or special needs experience.

If you’re looking for a last-minute backup babysitter, your best bet is to post a job for the quickest response from babysitters in your area.

Also unlike traditional babysitter agencies, you can really get to know your babysitter before making the hire. Many UrbanSitter babysitters also have education or experience with early childhood development, or have a teaching or nursing degree, which you’ll see in their detailed babysitter profiles. Babysitter profile videos, response times, number of repeat families, ratings, qualifications, and UrbanSitter reviews help you decide on the best baby sitter for your family. Why not get the whole family involved and let your kids pick their favorite babysitter based on the profile videos?

Conveniently, all babysitters in the app have an online calendar with their real time availability, so you can book a baby sitter in minutes or with a few taps from our babysitting app. You can even send a booking request to multiple babysitters, and whoever replies first will get the job while the other requests will be canceled.
