We have a curious and active 22 month toddler. We're looking for a regular/long term sitter who can care for our daughter when during school holidays and the occasional weekend/date night.
Ideally candidate has extensive experience with young children, Covid vaccinated and comfortable with dogs.
Values: Teaching our daughter respect, independence and empathy. We want her awake time to be focused on creative, interactive and age appropriate activities (reading, music, crafts, safe active play)... no screens please!
She loves books, music, building/creating, crafts, sensory and outside play. We don't have a ton of space in the house to run around, so being creative on play and exercise is important!
She's learning to feed and toilet in her own but still needs help (cutting and giving food in small amounts, helping her clean up and setting some safe guidelines during playtime). We really emphasize structure and cleanliness... for example, we encourage her to put away an activity/toy before moving in to the next.
Important traits for the sitter to have: attention to detail, patience, and enjoys children.
There's easy street parking, public transportation is about a half mile away.
We have 4 friendly but sometime rambunctious dogs. There are toddler/dog gates throughout the house so the dogs are alway separated from our daughter during playtime or eating.
