About this babysitting job

We are searching for a full-time caretaker to work with three amazing children this winter and spring under virtual and in-person school scenarios. We are two families with a two year-old girl, a six year-old girl, and a seven-year-old boy. The older children are in hybrid first grade school together. We need care from 8:30am - 4:30pm Monday through Friday. Our specific arrangement will depend upon whether school is virtual only or hybrid. The first graders are enrolled in a school that generally meets in person on M, T, TH, F and is virtual on Wednesday. On in-person school days, primary responsibilities will include caring for the two-year old 5 days a week, from 8:30-2, by taking walks and bike rides, playing inside and out, snack time and lunch, and putting down for naps. Pick up from school may also be required. On virtual school days, responsibilities also include facilitating virtual school, snack time, lunch and playtime from 8:30-2. For in-person and virtual school days, afternoons will be spent with the 7-year old boy from 2-4:30, primarily with outside-focused activities. Afternoons will sometimes include all three children. Candidates should be responsible, patient, fun-loving, and active, organized, flexible, and familiar with preschool and school-age children. Candidates must be committed to social distancing practices and transparent about potential and actual exposure to COVID-19. Our families commit to doing the same. Driving and having one’s own car is required to get back and forth to our houses in Petworth and Mt. Pleasant and to the children’s school in Georgetown. Pay is $15/hour when caring for one child, $20 for two kids, and $25/hour for all three kids.

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.
