Looking for experienced house manager/afternoon sitter for two active boys
We are seeking a house manager and after school sitter for our 7 and 9 yo boys in Garden City. The hours are M-F, 1:30-7:30, but would be full day on school holidays. We work in NYC (mom is going back to work after 4 years home) and will generally be home by 7.
Our ideal candidate is reliable, experienced, positive, self-structured and honest. We are looking for someone who is experienced at setting a consistent routine and who enjoys working with active boys. For their part, our boys would like someone who enjoys Pokemon (our older son) and baseball (our younger). For this job, you must drive, be a nonsmoker, provide references and pass a background check. Classroom experience would be a plus.
House management responsibilities: laundry, dishes, tidying/vacuuming, dinner prep and cleanup, put away deliveries, errands.
Babysitting responsibilities: Establish and maintain consistent (but not rigid) schedule. Meet kids at bus, oversee homework/reading, drive to activities, prep and provide snacks/dinner.
Please note - we do not pay "under the table." Please don't apply if you're looking to be paid in cash.
