Bastrop family needs a full-time babysitter. Must love kids! Our ideal match will meet the requirements below. Some light tidying up would be part of our caregiver's responsibilities. We do have pets, so please consider that when applying. You'll be responsible for pickups and drop-offs. Responsibilities would include meal prep. My husband and I have a 10-year-old girl, she's in pre-ap in 5th grade, as well as the gifted and talented program and gets a lot of extra work she may need direction with, she's great with her younger siblings and does daily chores to help out. She gets off the bus at 5:30 but may need to be picked up from extracurricular's some days at the school.
Then we have a 5-year-old boy, he's very sweet and loves to have constant conversations and build things. He has hypotonia, which is low muscle tone, this disability is mild and only requires that you are able to put his ankle braces, (SMOs), on or off of him and make sure he's not doing dangerous stunts around the yard or house because his balance is not that of a 5-year-old with average muscle tone. Our son is in the program for a half day, he gets off the bus at 12:30.
Our third child, a girl, is 3 and will be 4 in May. She is also in the program but doesn't have any disabilities, she's just general ed.
Both the younger children are potty independent but do sometimes have accidents still. I would need the right caregiver to keep the house reasonably tidy and clean up any messes that are made (food, accidents, etc.) but would not require actual deep house cleaning. Depending on my schedule on a given day there may be dinner that needs to be cooked for at least the children if not also my husband, I and yourself. The kids all eat lunches I make when they're at school, they will want snacks (at least semi-healthy) once they're home.
We will negotiate compensation once selected for an interview.
My permanent day off for now is Monday and we would not need you for weekends unless there's a special need or perhaps to be there so we can have a date night. So as of now, schedule would be Tues-Friday no earlier than 12 p.m. but may be as late as 8 p.m. in the evenings, other days may be 5 p.m.
