The Barker Family - Hiring in Wichita

The Barker Family

Wichita, KS
1 kid

A little bit about us…

Hi, we’re parents of now 19 month old Rowan, and 4 other kiddos who are older and not in need of care. We have an active household, with 4 dogs and a cat as well. Dad works remotely as a software engineer and consultant, and mom stays home to help care for the kids and home, and occasionally works remotely as well. We’re looking for someone willing to come in and help mom with Rowan’s care, daily activities, and light housekeeping like loading/unloading the dishwasher, picking up toys, organizing Rowan’s clothes, etc. so dad can focus on work during the week. Rowan loves outdoors, animals, reading, singing, coloring and other crafts, amongst other things. Other helpful things include accompanying mom on grocery runs, taking Rowan to the library, zoo, and other local attractions, and occasionally helping with pickup of our 2nd youngest from school which is less than 10 minutes away. This is a part time position, in our home, that we hope to make full time with the right person and enough time.

The Moore Family - Hiring in Olathe

2 kids

A little bit about us…

I’ve got 2 boys who are very active and love to dance and sing. Colston is my 4 year old and Phoenix is my almost 2 year old. I am a FT nursing student and work FT at the hospital on the weekends. My fiancé has a 8-7pm job and is home one Wednesdays. I would need care 4-5 days out of the week with some days only being a few hours while I’m in class or 12 hour days when I am in clinical. The schedule would be upfront and pretty set. You would come to our home and be responsible for cooking for the boys, light clean up of toys, and entertainment. There is a park nearby with baseball fields and play equipment. A community center is close. We have 2 dogs. We are needing someone who can understand the hours of someone in healthcare and school because we need the flexibility that our daycare does not have.
