We are looking for a long-term babysitter for our 3 children, ages 10, 7 and 5. Responsibilities would include getting the children ready in the morning and dropping them off at school. Then you would largely be free (we would ask that you tidy up a bit during this time and may occasionally request light grocery shopping) until the kids get out of school at 3 p.m. They will have a variety of after school activities. An ideal sitter would also arrange for play dates, help with homework and piano practice, and prepare healthy dinners. We would love someone with high energy with a significant amount of child care experience and who can engage the kids in creative and fun activities. One of us typically arrives home around 7:30, although there may be days where we are later. A certain amount of flexibility is important to us.
