The schedule will vary but for the most part we will need someone to watch the kids from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We also will need someone from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. As for the kids, my daughter is 10 years old and she is very independent, so you will not actually have to worry about her. My 2 years old requires much more attention of course. Pretty much he is on the schedule everyday, he takes a naps from 9:30 a.m. to 11am, usually. Then we give him lunch then around 5 or 6 p.m. he is usually goes to bed. I can tell you that it is not a lot of work at all. We are planing to bring someone very soon, so if you think this job might be for you, please feel free to contact us.
