Our child is very independent & strong-willed. She loves to climb & put things together/take things apart, so we need someone who can keep up with her energy and channel it in a more positive way. Not someone who is a pushover. She is a sweet, very intelligent child, who takes some time to warm up to you but when she does, you are her bestie. We also are a reading family, she loves books. I'm not looking for someone to sit her in front of the tv the entire time. Someone with some creativity to do projects with would be nice !. Our ideal caregiver: Understanding of a strong-willed child. Understanding the Montessori-style life.. Additional needs include light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. We could use help with structuring activities. Looking for a caregiver for my 2-year-old. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
