Rose I. - Seeking Work in Plainfield

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I worked for a Jewish family that had three children ages, 6 months, 4 years, and 6 years. Summer all children were home which meant I had to give special attention to each one of them. This includes personal care, bathing meals and activities inside and outside the home. It was a liv-in job, so most of the time when parents had to go out I watched the children overnight; monitoring their sleeping or distractions. I read bedtime stories to each one of them. The main care was projected to the young one 6 months old.
