We're looking for a patient, nurturing, and fun babysitter for our 3 children (ages 10, 8, 6) once they start school in August. Ideally as a long term relationship with our family. Hours will be 12 to 530 with occasional later end time. Duties include coming to our house at 12 p.m. to walk our dog and light housework (dishes, kids laundry, grocery pickup) until picking up kids at 2 p.m. Would also need help with meal/snack prep, making lunches with kids, helping with homework, and children's laundry (with help from the kids). May also need to drive kids to after school activities in the neighborhood. Must be comfortable with animals as we have 1 cat and 1 dog.
