The Rhodes Family - Hiring in Hollis

The Rhodes Family

Hollis, ME
4 kids

A little bit about us…

We are self employed and our business is very busy, with that said we also have 4 kids and no family to help us out in times of need. We are looking for a well rounded, like minded person to help us with our children. We have an 8 year old boy with mild autism, great kid and loves video games. Two of our children are doing remote learning and we would like some assistance with this process. Our 5 year old girl is super sweet and is willing to help out whenever needed. She is very well behaved. Our 3 year old is the one jumping off the walls. She’s very hyper like any 3 year old usually is. She claims to always be bored and loves games. Our 8 month old is very clingy to mom but not very shy to others. We might need light meal prep help but usually just lunch and snacks. We have a yorkie poo and she is super sweet. Our family is very active and a load of fun. Hours are flexible, but might include weekend days or trips out of town with the family(paid by us). We have a dba set up with payroll available if needed. Looking forward to meeting you!

A little bit about us…

I have four kids, mostly needing help with the littlest one during school hours occasionally. Would love someone who has the ability to work with all 4 as needed. One older child would also benefit from some one-on-one time as we cannot get a BHP due to no staff.
