Starting the week of September 3, we are seeking a highly responsible senior or graduate student to babysit five days a week for approximately 3 hours per day (4:00-7:00). The job entails picking up our two children—our daughter is 8 years old; our son is 5— from their respective schools in Brooklyn and bringing them back to our house in Red Hook; doing basic food prep (we generally have dinner prepared in the fridge that needs heating up), and playing with them until one of us returns from work (around 6:30).
We are looking for someone who will inspire a spirited debate about whether he/she is the kindest person we’ve ever known or the most responsible! The pay is $20/hour and we will cover public transportation costs associated with transporting the kids. About us: I am an attorney and my husband is a museum curator; while we are generally flexible where possible, our work hours are such that we really need to be able to rely on a highly responsible and dependable sitter.
