Safety is the most important for my family. My two boys are high energy kids. We need someone who knows how to keep them safe yet engaged and listening. The older one is inquisitive, loves to build things and ask lots of questions but needs guidance in focusing. The littlest one has global delays but has amazing problem solving skills and incredibly determined. He needs constant supervision. They love to stay active and explore. Parents need respite care for both children but mostly for the younger one for 3-4 hours a day three-four times/week. We need a reliable, trustworthy, patient, attentive and nurturing care giver that may occasionally need to help the older one with homework and maybe walk the dog but mostly help is really needed for the little to stay busy, engaged & SAFE.
