Hi! Looking for care for my highly energetic 16-month old son. We’re looking for someone who will:

- play outside
- take him to parks/indoor play center a couple times/week
- do some educational activities

The hours would be as follows:

Tuesday: 10am-2pm
Wednesday: 6:00am-3:00pm
Thursday: 6:00am-3:00pm
Friday: 10am-2pm

I work from home on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, so those days are flexible as far as times go but there might days where I’ll need specific times for meetings, etc. My husband should be home around 3pm everyday.

I’m really looking for someone who will be able to pay attention to him more than I can while I’m working.

Care for my daughter will not be required. Looking for someone who is interested in just adding to supplement income vs. using this as their main income.
