We have a 4-year-old daughter who loves dancing, singing, music, and princesses. She's quite smart and is currently attending half day pre-K at the local elementary school and is also doing an indoor soccer program on the weekends. She's also a big art and craft fan and can spend time coloring/cutting/pasting projects when she focuses in. Our 2-year-old son is indeed a climber! He loves trains and construction vehicles and generally anything on wheels! We're currently working to help him along with his verbal communication. We also have a 10-year-old golden retriever named Teddy. We would ask that you are able to bring our daughter to school and pick her up. School is 8:30-11:15. Out general schedule would be 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. My wife is a teacher so snow days would be canceled. Our ideal caregiver: Our current caregiver is proving unreliable and when she is here is relying too much on television as an activity. We'd ideally like someone who wants to actively spend the day with our children and help them learn and grow and have fun. We also will require reliability, both my wife and I have been missing significant amounts of work because our current caregiver has missed so many days. Additional needs include pick up / drop off, light housekeeping, meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 2-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter. Flexible start date.
