It is really important to us to have ideally a 1 year or more commitment with anyone caring for our kids. We hope to invest in you and have you become like family. Our youngest child is adopted and attachment/trust can be hard for her, so we aren't interested in sporadic or just summer childcare. We are looking for someone 15-20 hrs a week. For sure long Wednesdays with some alternating mornings. If a set schedule is necessary for you, please let us know. Flexibility to pick up other days on occasion would be amazing. Boys will most often be in school starting in July, and would needs some support with home work.. Willingness to help with play date/class drop offs and leave the house in the condition we left it in is ideal :). Occasional weekend date nights would basically be a dream.
