My husband and I both work in education. I oversee student life at Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken) and Ben is a clinical child psychologist at the Collegiate School in Manhattan. We moved to Maplewood from Brooklyn about 2 years ago. Our kids are hilarious and a lot of fun. They both love art, dance, playing outside, music, skiing, and eating sweets.
David and I have two friendly, imaginative daughters who are in daycare from 7:30am-5pm daily. They love playing make believe games, watching Daniel Tiger, and singing made up songs. Our oldest is 3.5 years old and our youngest is almost 1-year-old. They adore each other and are easy-going kids.
Husband, two boys, and I have lived in Maplewood almost a year. Older boy goes to pre school and will be going to summer camp all day 5 days per week. Baby boy born early September 2017 is a super easygoing guy-- happy and sweet! Most of the babysitter's time will be with the baby, but might need some help with both at the same time on occasion. ALSO have a beautiful, big, energetic, super-friendly dog who sheds. Looking for a dog-loving sitter!
My husband and I are very family oriented people who work full-time in the pharmaceutical industry. My husband works on for an oncology wholesaler, while I am an account manager for a biotech company selling rare disease therapeutics. We work locally, but on occasion have to travel so our childcare is critical to provide seamless continuity. Our children are very well behaved kids.....really!! Giada is 9 yrs old and is currently in 4th grade. She is on a travel soccer team and she dances recreationally. She also takes vocal lessons and piano. Carmel is 11 years old and in 5th grade. He is also on the travel soccer team and in a Lacrosse Club team. He loves to play Fortnite when he is done with homework and not at a practice. Our oldest, Sicilia, is 13 and in 8th grade. She enjoys dance and plays rec soccer. Sicilia is a self motivated student who is very diligent with her studies and is super responsible. We are a very laid back family that likes to tease and laugh at each other.
Our South Orange family is looking for a driving babysitter for our two sons, 9 and 6 years old. We need someone for 2 or 3 days this summer from 1pm - 4pm or 5pm, with flexibility on hours and days some weeks but we will guarantee payment for those hours per week even if we don't need help on certain days. The babysitter needs to pick the children up from camp in South Orange and supervise them/ take to park/take to zoo/hang out at home with our sweet dog.
Our boys are kind, fun, well-behaved and self-sufficient. They like to sing, dance, draw, read, play board games, play some sports, and just hang out. I am home most days in my office working, and the boys are used to having a babysitter to do things with while I am busy.
I work with farms and my wife is a psychologist. We have 3 kids - 16yr old girl (practicing driving and studying for SAT's) 14yr old son (finishing up his freshman year and creating lots of fantastic artwork) and 9ry old boy, who loves everything about computers and the TV show Friends!
We've got three kids - our oldest (Catherine) is 8 years old and we have boy/girl twins (Alex & Sophia) who are 6. Nights used to be frustrating because the kids need time to do their homework and after care is not a conducive space to get work done. So we'd spent a long time doing homework after we got home from work and then rush through dinner before bed which isn't fun for anyone!
Our goal is to have someone meet them off the bus right outside our house, give them a snack and ensure they get their homework done (helping if necessary). After all homework is done then keep them busy until we're home - they love to play outside (ride bikes, chalk, sports, etc) or doing arts and crafts or playing games inside. We also have a very friendly dog so need someone who is comfortable with pets. We need someone reliable and responsible with your own car to get to our house.
