Hello there-we have two fun loving kids that we are looking to find a caring, fun babysitter for. Our daughter is 5 years old and our son is 8 years old they love exploring the outdoors, playing make believe and investigating bugs and tidal pools.
We are looking for a babysitter who is available occasionally on weekday evenings and the weekends. The ideal candidate will be warm and caring, enjoy exploring nature, playing with dolls / bayblades and board games-
occasional meal prep and putting the kids to bed would be great!
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.
