My wife Juliette and I are looking for about 8 hours a week of help a week (Mondays and Wednesdays 8am-12pm) for our family of a 17-month old girl and newborn boy. Juliette will be home on Wednesdays, this role would be like a mommy's helper/babysitter for the newborn so Juliette could get out of the house with the toddler as needed! There will likely be some days for overlap with the toddler, but primarily it will be 1:1 with the newborn. Let us know if you are interested in discussing further!

A little bit about us…

I will be a scientist at UConn. Our family is considering a relocation to Farmington. My wife is an Auditor.

Our two children are Alex (3yo M) and Logan (1.5yo M), two little guys full of fun!

I tend to work 8-9am to between 3 and 5pm. Hours can range from 30-40hr/wk of childcare. We’re happy to pay a fixed rate.

We have a 7yo Great Dane, Kendall. She might be one of the largest dogs you’ll meet, but she is also the sweetest. She was raised in a home daycare facility and we adopted her at 1yo.

Duties:
Promote academic growth by fostering a learning environment for our children
Play and have fun with our boys
Feed our boys
Change our youngest child’s diaper (our oldest is potty trained).
We do request that screen time is limited to 1hr/day (nap or quiet time) and for daycare providers to not be on their phones during play.
