The Arnson Family - Hiring in La Grande
The Arnson Family
La Grande$12/hr  |  1 kid
My husband and I both work from home and need part-time care for our 2-year old. She just turned 2 and loves to read books, play in the yard, and watch movies. She still takes a nap around 2pm. We will be home, but may have meetings or phone calls where we won't be available to come help. We will both be in and out of our offices, depending on our schedules so if you need a break, we can accommodate that. We prefer a non-smoker though. My husband does smoke, but never around the baby.
We want someone that will love her like we do and will play with her and teach her things. I know most parents say this, but we think she's pretty smart! :)
Light housekeeping would be preferable, but not required. Meal prep, but just food for her and yourself at lunch, no big meals or anything like that.
Hours would be from around 10am to 2pm. We are pretty flexible, so other times work as well if you need a different schedule.
We also have three older children (19, 15, and 12) that will not need care, but they can help you when they are not in school. My mom will be in town part of May and June so we may not need you as much those weeks.
We don't have a pet right now, but may get a dog soon.
There will not be a reason to drive her around or anything like that, and we prefer that she stays home, so you don't need a car, but some kind of transportation to or from our house is preferable.
We have an alarm system and smart devices that we can teach you how to use. We also have security cameras around the house, so you will need to be comfortable with that.
Payment can be through apps (Venmo, CashApp, Google Pay, Apple Pay, or Paypal) or cash, if necessary.
We will have an interview process so you can meet us and Lillian, our 12-year old is a little apprehensive about having someone watch her baby sister, so we will need to convince her too. Ha!
Thank you for reading this far, we're new to this and excited for Lillian to have a new friend. :)
