We are a bilingual, bi-cultural family with strong ties to Latin America. We need help with childcare for our two highly intelligent, well behaved, bilingual kids, ages 9 and 7. We need help every Monday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and some Fridays from 3-6pm, as well as occasional evening babysitting when we go out. Duties include getting my kids off the bus, light cleaning, errands, help with homework, and speaking Spanish with the kids. We prefer to have a Spanish speaker and someone who understands Latin culture. If we work late, we may need you to start dinner, run errands, etc. The most important quality for us is someone who is helpful and proactive--meaning solving problems, cleaning up when necessary, starting dinner, and modeling good behavior. We have a strong preference for a native Spanish speaker, and Portuguese is also a plus!
