Hi! My son is 2 1/2 yo. We are looking for someone to come to our house on Wed. and Friday's. 9am-5pm. His older sister gets out of school at 3pm and we need someone who can as well walk over to the school and grab her. The school is VERY close by. She is 4 yo. My oldest is 9yo and will be home doing online learning. She is very smart and doesn't require much assistance but it would be nice for someone to assist her with help if she had questions. They are very sweet, good children. We had my son's last babysitter for a long time but she just got diagnosed with cancer and can no longer take care of him on those days :(
