Family looking for a caretaker starting ASAP (flexible) in North Center - $16/hr

Posted a month ago by a parent

Part Time, starting ASAP
Chicago - North Center
1 child: 6 years
$16/hour on 4 days per week

Hi! I'm Melissa, looking for a sitter to help with my first grader during CPS remote learning. You'll have a fair among of downtime while she is engaged in live sessions. During non-live sessions, you'd be helping her get to the website/app/workbook for her independent work, playing during break times, and occasionally getting snack and lunch. I'm hoping for someone to help 16-18 hours a week, over 3-4 days between 9-2. We're pretty flexible. Both parents are working from home, and we also have a 6 month old baby. The baby won't require regular care- maybe once a week I might ask you to watch him for an hour while I run an errand or something. With a baby in the house, we take COVID precautions seriously. We work from home, wear masks and social distance consistently while out, do not go to restaurants or events. We have occasional masked playdates outdoors only. We wash hands every time we come in, remove shoes in the home, sanitize doorknobs/light switches/etc. daily. We usually have groceries and essentials delivered or do curbside pickup, though do (rarely) have to enter stores. We have a very old, sweet greyhound dog, who is a retired racer and sleeps most of the time. I prefer to pay weekly through Zelle/QuickPay or Venmo. With COVID, we'd prefer someone who is looking for part-time work only (e.g. college students, parents who may need to bring a child along) and does not have additional work that increases exposure. I know this stinks, because it's only part time and child care workers deserve a full living wage. However, we aren't able to offer full-time right now. Thanks for reading! I look forward to talking more.

What sets UrbanSitter apart is its amazing local network of babysitter and nanny recommendations from parents you’re connected with through school, moms and dads groups or social networks.

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. You can even save your search to be notified whenever new babysitters join and meet your requirements. 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.
