We are looking for a calm, responsible babysitter for 2 children in Astoria. Our son is 9 years old entering 5th grade and our daughter is 6 years old entering 2nd grade. Primary responsibilities would include picking kids up from school (5 minute walk from the house), preparing snacks/meals, keeping the kids active outdoors, and help with remote learning and homework. Our daughter has Type 1 Diabetes, a serious medical condition that requires constant vigilance, so clear communication and willingness to assist with her medical care is essential. Duties may also include light housekeeping, errands or grocery shopping, and laundry. We would prefer a babysitter who can commute to our house without using public transportation. Non smokers only. We have two indoor cats and a puppy, so candidate must be comfortable with pets.
