Program Details

Our main goal is to have someone to care for our 4 year old a minimum of 2 days a week while we work (8 or 9 hours each day). In addition to child care, some light household duties will be required (washing dishes, cleaning up after the child, minor cooking, etc).
The other days of the week, at least one of us will be here and less help will be needed. Even when we are home, we are always busy around the house cooking, gardening or working on a project. We would like someone that is flexible and willing to help in other tasks as well.







Activities & Shift

***2 days a week: caring for our son from from 7 am to 4pm while we work*** (this is the most important need we have, other than these 2 days of the week, the other days we are flexible). Caring for the child means making little snacks and feeding it to him, reading books and playing with him, entertaining him, cleaning after him -kids can be messy sometimes-, making sure he is safe and happy, he is only 4 years old but super smart and independent. He can communicate clearly in both English and Portuguese. During these 2 days both of us (mom and dad) will be at work.

2 days a week: one of us will be here and just a few hours of help around the house or garden is all we need (food preparation, small project, entertaining our son, taking the trash out, etc)

3 days a week: OFF
