My daughter, age 6 would ride the bus and be dropped off after school. So she'd only be in your care for a few hours (except for the summers obviously). My son J, will be 4 by the time we would need care. He is wise beyond his years but also needs to be challenged! Our little peanut on the way will be 3 months by the time we need care!. Our ideal caregiver: I don't expect light housework to be done, but I do expect to find my house in the same condition it was in when they got there (so basically just pick up what you do!) Definitely don't need to meal prep but making breakfast and lunch is required, supper is not!. Additional needs include being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant daughter, 4-year-old son, and 6-year-old daughter.
