We are looking for a summer babysitter for an 8-year-old and an 11-year-old. The job involves engaging the children in indoor (e. g., games, crafts, etc.) and outdoor activities (e. g., parks, swimming, sports, etc.), play dates, the completion of summer academic work, and driving the kids to activities (e. g., swim practice, local half day camps). Light housekeeping is needed including one load of laundry per child per week, preparing and cleaning up lunch and snack, and ensuring that the children pick up the house each day. Finally, you must be comfortable with pets since we have two, senior cats. The job would run from June 24th through Labor Day and the hours are 8:30-4:30. However, we will be on vacation for one to two weeks during that time period and will not need care during those times. The rate of pay is 450-550 per week and is negotiable if needed.
