My partner and I are looking for a consistent careworker to come to our home in Edgewater Mon-Fri 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are looking for someone who is proactive and can provide Z with a variety of activities during the day. Z loves to read and play with her toys and we are looking for someone who is creative and can provide arts and crafts activities. Z enjoys the playground and spending time outside. Otherwise she loves to sing songs, make music, role play with her toys, and read books.

We hope you are able to cook healthy meals and clean up after Z during mealtime or after messes. You will have to be able to change diapers and change her clothes. Helping to keep the house tidy and clean is appreciated.

We are aiming to raise Z with a strong foundation of social justice values and plenty of opportunities for her curiosity to grow. We hope she develops great socialization skills with other kids and adults. We would love if Z learns how to potty-train in the coming months to a year. She is allergic to nuts but can tolerate some foods with nuts like peanut butter waffles.

Experience with toddlers and children is a plus. Reliable transportation and punctuality also.
