Childcare Opportunity

I am looking for a mother’s helper to assist with my 21 month old daughter (and newborn coming in October!!!

Requirements:

  • Starts end of August / early September and goes until at least the end of 2020, with option to extend if I am still working from home after the new year (likely)
  • Hours can be flexible, but I’m hoping for 8 am – 4 pm M-F
  • Must be authorized to work in the US and paid on the books – we will handle all payroll taxes etc.
  • STRICT social distancing. Newborn in the house = you must either drive to our house (parking spot provided) or walk/bike.
  • We have a dog and a cat – both very friendly, but if you have pet allergies this will not work.
  • Fluent in Spanish
  • Light housekeeping – load / unload the dishwasher, help with toddler’s laundry, tidy her playspace, etc.
  • Salary commensurate with experience
  • We will offer paid sick days and vacation (to be discussed due to short duration)A little more about us – my toddler is VERY active and will want to go outside all day everyday, to playgrounds, parks, etc. This is not a job for someone who wants to sit on the couch and play on their phone. But if you like keeping busy and watching a hilariously entertaining toddler, this is the perfect fit.

This would also be a good position for someone looking to gain newborn experience – while I expect the mother’s helper to primarily deal with my toddler, I would be happy to have some assistance with the newborn as well

Please do not respond if you do not fit all of the above. If you do, please reach out with your resume, references, and salary requirement. I look forward to hearing from you!
