Our family is looking for a fun and patient caretaker that can help us prepare our 2 oldest children for the next school year. We have 3 kids (aged 5, 2.5, and a baby who will be 9 months old by the summer time). If a student with a major in education or child development applies, we would be interested in having them tutor the 5 year old while I care for the other two children and switching to tutor the 2.5 year old while I again handle the other 2 children. However, if the applicant is more adept at caretaking than teaching, I can teach my older kids while the candidate plays with/cares for the others. Will need to be able to take care of at least 2 of the kids at a time (including play with them, help them eat their dinner ( food will be cooked/provided for the kids in advance), oversee them cleaning up the playroom, get them ready for bed, etc.). Ideally, a candidate could handle all 3 kids so my husband and I can go on date nights.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Must be comfortable with a Golden Retriever in the house.
  • Experience with children between the ages of 0-5.
  • Experience in teaching or in childcare.
  • Positive attitude.
  • Patient and kind demeanor.
  • Can make learning fun with 'games' or songs or interactive learning.
  • Can handle sibling disagreements in respectful way that encourages conflict resolution.

Additional Qualifications (not required, but would be an attractive bonus):

  • Speaks a second language (especially Spanish).
  • Plays the piano.
  • Skilled/willing to make crafts with children.
  • Active/enjoys playing outside.
  • Experience teaching kids to read.
  • CPR certified
