Outer Limits- Student Assistant
Summer Babysitter Needed – Full Time
We’re looking for a summer babysitter to work as part of our team taking care of our 4 small children in Brookland.
This person will have primary responsibility for our two young boys, ages 2 and 3. They are both sweet, chatty, and active. Your days will include helping them with breakfast and getting dressed, then exploring some part of the neighborhood or city – on foot, stroller, bus, or metro. Lunch and afternoon rest time, and then more activity, likely closer to home.
We also have 3 month old twin girls. We have another person who has primary responsibility for them, but want everyone to work as a team (so you may find yourself giving a bottle or holding a baby and they can help you as well).
We’re looking for someone who:
– is able to care respectfully for our children, engaging them as whole people, communicating with them kindly, keeping their days relatively simple and predictable
– has a good attitude and familiarity working with small children day-in-day-out
– is able to work alongside others (our other sitter, either parent when they aren’t working, sometimes our mothers)
Our other babysitter speaks primarily Spanish, so if you speak Spanish, that’s great! If you want to learn Spanish, this is a good opportunity to practice! If you don’t speak Spanish, we actually think it will work out fine as people will have defined roles and a lot is quickly communicated through smiles and gestures!
Other responsibilities include: cleaning up from the children’s meals, occasional household chores like vacuuming or emptying the dishwasher.
Monday – 5 hours, between the hours of 7am and 5pm
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – 10 hours – 7am to 5 pm
Friday – 5 hours, between the hours of 7am and 5pm
CPR and First Aid Certified is a plus. Pay: depending on experience. Position is June through August. Would likely continue with part-time care (either daytime or night and weekend) in the fall based on your availability.
ISO Evening and Weekend Sitter
We’re looking for someone to help us manage weekday evenings and some weekend days with our 4 small children in Brookland.
We have a 3 year old, 2 year old, and 3 month old twins and are hiring someone to join us weekday evenings or on the weekends helping us to get dinner on the table, clean up, and get children ready for bed; or just general life on weekends.
Responsibilities will include: playing, eating, dishes and cleanup, maybe a bath or two. At least for now, there will always be at least another adult home, often 2 – we’re just trying to keep things sane!
Pay: depending on experience.
For more information, please contact: Elizabeth Knox at 202-744-7242 or firstname.lastname@example.org
