Hi, we're an active family of 5 living in Maplewood NJ. Kids are 9, 7, and 5. Parents both work in NJ. Kids participate in a few sport activities. looking for a sitter to pickup and watch kids after school, between 3-7, dropoff at team practices. Some light cooking and cleaning. Assisting with morning drop offs would be a plus.
We are a fun, busy family who live very close to the village in Maplewood. Dad has stayed at home looking after the kiddos for the past several years while mom has kept the dough rolling in. Dad now has an opportunity to go back to work full time too so we're looking for an equally fun, dedicated long-term sitter to step in and take care of our three very well behaved kids in the afternoons/early evenings.
Family of 4 - busy house. Mom is moving to Switzerland for work and Dad is a Dr. we have good support systems for the day to day laundry/ housekeeping. Need someone who will be home for 9 year old and supervise play dates / homework. Give him snacks and dinner as needed. Get him ready for ice hockey and other sports and drive him to practice. Some car pool for other kids to and from near by school (12 mins from house) and some dinner prep. Minivan available for driving.
Stay at home mom with 2 children. Daughter is almost 5 and in pre-k. Son is 2.5. It's hard for me to run errands or go to doctors appointments with my kids. I'm looking for someone who can help me whether it's picking my daughter up at school (while son is napping), a person who likes to entertain kiddos with activities, and even taking to library or indoor play spaces in cold weather. I also just need a few hours to myself!
<p>We are a close-knit family of four, and what is most important to our family is instilling the importance of friendship, kindness and independence in our children. We work very hard at finding the right balance between instilling independence and setting limits. Our daughter Meredith is almost 10 years old. She is a talented artist who loves all forms of creating: drawing, painting, sculpting. We are fully stocked with art at the ready for her to create when she so desires. She also loves gymnastics, swimming and playing outside. She has a terrific imagination. Our son Ari is almost 7 years old. He is the family clown - always making us laugh. He is an extremely active and curious little boy. He is extremely verbal and physical, as well as mischievous. But he’s also a sweet little boy and is sometimes content to snuggle in the closest available lap. Meredith and Ari are developing a strong sister-brother relationship, each helping the other when needed and for the most part getting along well. We are seeking a babysitter who can: </p>
<li>keep our children safe, happy and engaged</li>
<li>provide our children with a structured day, guidance and limit setting </li>
