Arlington - Arlington (1 mile from DC)

$20/hour for 30 hours per week

Hi! About us: We are a family of 4: my husband, myself, my Mom and our son who turned 4 in September. Some of our favorite things to do are spontaneous dance parties, exploring the area for colorful street art and going on nature treasure hunts. My husband + I both work from home due to Covid. We each have home offices away from the main living areas so we will be largely out of the way. My Mom lives with us too + has a big grandma social life when Covid doesn't mess up her plans. Our son: Here's how I described him in an Instagram post on his recent birthday: “Our little man is 4! We love him for his curiosity, kindness, love for laughing at his own jokes (and making us laugh too!) and his devotion to Boursin cheese." He is smart, sensitive and fun. The job: Our son is in preschool in the mornings. We are looking for someone with a clean driving record who is comfortable driving (in our car) around the DC area as needed. You’d be picking him up from school and bringing him home or taking him to activities. His afternoons vary: sometimes he has activities/appointments + sometimes he comes home to play. Speaking of play, we are looking for someone that is energetic and curious, just like our son. We live in a great area for exploring with lots of parks, playgrounds and creeks. He also loves to do art projects, dress up in different costumes, build Legos and play with PlayDoh so we are looking for someone who can encourage him to be creative and active. Our expectations are that this job will include tasks related to our son’s day including preparing his meals, cleaning up his toys and doing his laundry. Communication about our son’s day is very important to us including hearing about his day. We love photos of activities. Note: if you are looking to work more than 30 hours/week, we may have flexibility to go up to 40 hours with additional responsibilities. Covid: We are taking Covid protocols extremely seriously especially since my Mom is high risk due to her age. We have limited our activities drastically, practice social distancing and wear masks. Our son’s school requires 100% mask compliance + is great at it. We are seeking someone who has been similarly cautious. For now, we will be asking whomever we hire to wear a mask and we will do the same. We can reassess this periodically. Other requirements: childcare experience with references, clean-driving record, up-to-date on vaccines, non-smoking, CPR-certified

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.

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.
