Hi, we're looking for someone reliable to watch our little 4 month old boy Sam, and sometimes would include his 2 year old brother Seamus.
Would be mainly 3-4 hours on a weekend, or weekday evening (likely around 8 : 00-12 : 00 pm as a rough timeline expectation).
Both boys go down for the night at 7 : 30 so they likely will be both already asleep when you arrive, with Sam potentially having to be bottle fed between 11-
12 if he wakes up. We would have the bottle ready of course, and he typically feeds very well at that time. His brother Seamus will sleep through the night until 7 : 00 am so will require no direct care.
We're initially looking for someone for this Saturday June 22nd from 8 : 00-midnight, and we'd be looking at similar additional (undetermined at this time) dates in the future as well.
The per hour rate is negotiable. Thanks for taking the time to read, and look forward to hearing from you. Dan & Anna : )
Occasional child care requires a specific mindset. It's being comfortable and confident to step in and help a family from time to time and manage the adjustment particularly younger kids face to parents not being around.
Its important to create a safe, caring, nurturing and stimulating experience. A great babysitter from the kids perspective is someone who is fun, loves to play, sing, run and do creative projects.
For a parent, it's all of the above, but also meal preparation for the kids, keeping the children’s areas neat and tidy, helping older kids with homework and being able to respect rules around discipline, nap / bed time and process.
