We are a military family. My husband will be gone a lot. I am a teacher so I have a pretty consistent schedule. We are an active family and the kids are at their best when they are outside playing!. Our ideal caregiver: The ideal caregiver is someone who has the child's best interest at heart. A caregiver should enjoy playing and loving the kids. Kids can be difficult, especially when they are not your own. The caregiver needs to be patient and understanding. A caregiver understands the TV or tablet is not the one getting paid. The outdoors and fun crafts are what kids need.. Additional needs include pick up / drop off and having a reliable car. Looking for a caregiver for my infant daughter and 3-year-old son.
