Summer childcare help for daughter turning 11 in August, and 2.5 year old son.

Job Type

  • Care


from June 24, 2019 until August 23, 2019

I am looking for childcare help this summer. I have a daughter who will be turning 11 in August, and a 2.5 year old son. I work for a local school system and have the summer off, but we are post-renovations and I am hoping to devote as much time as I can this summer to unpacking boxes/storage pods and organizing things. My son attends a daycare which is closed in the summer. However, he receives Early Intervention services and will likely be attending a program in Wilmington most days 9-2. My daughter is signed up for a few day camps here and there, but will otherwise be spending time at home, with friends, or at our pool club, and will need care/supervision. It will vary by the day, but I am looking for someone who is able to perform the following: drop off and pick up my daughter from her various day camps (in Arlington); bring her (and sometimes a friend?) to and from the pool club and provide supervision there (safety, tween girl issue intervention :-), sunscreen, lunch, snacks); drop off and pick up of my son from his program in Wilmington (30 minute drive); babysitting at home of one or both children; simple meal/lunch prep/packing for pool and other outings; diaper changing/dressing; entertaining/playing/going to park. Looking for someone with experience/confidence, who can take charge with the kids and be self-guided. Good time-management skills as drop-off/pick-ups need to be on time. Need to have your own car (that you’re willing to put a carseat in), a valid license, safe driving record, and experience with driving kids/carseats.
