We have children ages 16 & 11.We have had au pairs for many years but wanted to try an alternate arrangement. We are looking for a responsible sitter who is comfortable being with older children. We need some driving, light cooking, and basic supervision for the kids. We may not need childcare during some school breaks. Our start date will be late August/early Sept.
We are a family of four! My husband and I work full-time and we enjoy our kids every free moment we get. We love the outdoors and traveling! The girls are best friends to each other and love to play outside, do arts and crafts, and all things girly! They are great little helpers and get involved with any projects we are working on. They are curious and creative. They are looking to be with a sitter that likes to have fun!
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.
Kate is a newspaper reporter in NYC who also travels and works from home, Jonathan is the chief medical officer of a biotech startup in NYC (where he employs one of our past sitters!) In the summer our younger son does a couple of weeks at sleep away camp and our older son plays tennis at day camps. They also spend time at our pool club, where you could take them. During the school year, they play tennis and baseball and need driving to those activities and to tutoring and music lessons nearby. Our boys are fun, good-natured and adaptable and have always gotten along well with sitters and other adults. When not at activities, they like to play with the dog in the backyard, play with neighborhood friends, fly a drone, walk to nearby town center, read, and yes, play on screens, which we try to limit, with some success. Our older one will be starting middle school in the fall and will get home around 2:30 each day, the other walks home and arrives closer to 3:45. We are somewhat flexible on hours to work with your schedule, could start at 3 some days and finish at 6:30 if necessary. We'd also love to find someone who could work one weekday evening a week either every week or most weeks, to allow us a night out!
Father is an attorney and partner at a law firm, mother is Superwoman, Jameson is an incredibly mature and big-hearted 7-year old, and Jonah is his energetic and athletic little brother. The dogs - Dharma, Pippin, and Samwise - weigh a collective 40 pounds (or less), and don't require more than being let out in the back. The fish fend for themselves. Father and mother are looking for help so that she can join him for business events (dinners, receptions, etc.) once and a while.
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.
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!
