Queens, New York$20/hr | 1 kid
Hello! I am a teacher in Astoria and I have a 3 year old boy that will be starting preschool in September. I am looking for a caregiver that is available on weekday afternoons, (likely between 1pm and 6pm) to take my son off of the bus when he arrives home from school and care for him until I return home from work. My son is a sweet boy with some language delays. He adores reading books, coloring/painting, and visits to the park. We are looking for a caregiver that is patient with a child that may have difficulty communicating verbally and is interested in interacting with him (reading books, playing games, etc). Responsibilities would include arriving on time, bringing my son in from the bus, giving him a snack (or possibly an early dinner if I have a parent-teacher conference), providing him with scheduled bathroom breaks, engaging him through play (guiding him through a simple art project-coloring or gluing, singing songs, working on a puzzle, stringing beads, pretend play, etc), and occasionally overseeing visits to the park or library.
