A little bit about us…

Me and dad work Monday- Friday. We need someone to assist with picking up from school. Also light meal prep. Pick up for the 6 year old is 3:05 pm. My 14 year old is 3:25 pm. They are a total of 6 minutes apart. I’m usually home between 6:30-7pm So about 4 hours a day of care. My teenager has been diagnosed with depression disorder. She’s been stable but I like to keep an eye on her. I will need someone who is consistent and reliable. Dad may have a day off a week when he can get them but for the most part it’s Monday-Friday. I also qualify for action for children with my son if it is an acceptable form of payment for you.
