Keep both children engaged and on a schedule. They do best when there are guidelines. Play is always an option, as long as homework is done and rules are followed. Our ideal caregiver: Extremely reliable and responsible. Willing to set a good example and assist kids with homework. Adhere to household rules and be empathetic to my children's needs. Additional needs include pick up / drop off, light housekeeping, meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 5-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
