Childcare/babysitting location vicinity: Shelter Island, NY
Job description:
We are seeking a live-in childcare provider for our 15 mo old baby (Maya) for the summer. We live on Shelter Island, NY (with possible time in Brooklyn). The position is perfect for an experienced babysitter who is attending courses or working part-time (remotely) with flexibility to do 20-30 paid hours of childcare. We will provide a great living space as well as all food/meals as part of the position.

Maya is an adorable baby in a fun stage of development -- newly walking and learning new communication every day!

The student / childcare provider will have her/his own living space with bedroom, bathroom, study space and a partial kitchen. We are hoping for 3-4 hours/day, 6-7 days/wk -- and the timing can be generally organized around the students' schedule.

Both my wife and I will be working remotely from the home. Shelter Island is a lovely place to live -- our home is on the water and the student will have full use of boats, paddle boards, bikes, etc as weather warms up!

We will ask the student to exercise all safety precautions pertaining to COVID 19 before and during their time with us, and we will do the same.

Happy to answer any/all questions over phone and email if you are interested in learning more. Thanks!

Job description:
Looking for an experienced, caring, fun, and reliable summer nanny for our 2 kids (4. 5 and 6 this summer). At least one of us will be working from home this summer so we're flexible on the exact hours and start/end, date but looking for a min of 7 hrs/day.

We've been social distancing for the last year and I'm fully vaccinated. My husband will get vaccinated once he's eligible and looking for a nanny who plans to do the same. We'd love to find a teacher or grad student who is looking for a summer gig.

Looking for someone patient and energetic who loves working w/young kids and spending time exploring the outdoors. Must be able to handle high energy and strong-willed kids! Chaos happens (regularly!) so looking for someone who won't get frazzled those situations arise. Must have extensive experience caring for young kids and excellent references.

Job description:
We are in need of a sitter/nanny for our 3 children. Our boy will be 5 in July and twin girls will be 3 in June. All are potty-trained and are wonderful kids! We are looking for Monday, Tuesday, and Thurs afternoon from about 12:30-5:30...but do have some flexibility with that. Possibly all day (9-5) Wednesday too (or even instead), but that is flexible. A plus if able to pick them up from pre-school/day care in the neighborhood (short walk) shortly after noon, but that is not required if unable. Have large driveway/outdoor area, so easy to get them out to play. Help with giving them lunch and dinner, which we can mostly prepare. One parent typically home working in office and there if needed, but will be busy and NOT be hovering over you! Kids can play among themselves, but looking for someone who is energetic and fun who can play along with them at times and read them books, etc..
