Living Area: put things away, clean surfaces, organize kids toys, etc. 3. Take out trash, recycling, and compost, break down cardboard boxes 4. General dusting/light cleaning We have a company that does a deep clean of the house every 2 weeks - bathrooms, etc, so this is not needed other than basic light clean.

We are looking for help with pick up/drop off to daycare and the occasional weekend. My husband and I are both in healthcare and we have 4-year-old twins that are enrolled full time in daycare in a center in Palo Alto. On the days that I work (3 12 hour shifts) we need someone to come to our home to assist the kids with getting ready for the day and to get them to the daycare. On the days that neither my husband or myself are off of work, we would also need someone to pick them up from school and get them started on their evening routine (bath, a very easy dinner, playtime, etc.) until a parent is able to get home. We would also occasionally need weekend care if we are both working. Please message me if interested and Id love to share some more details about our family. Thank you for considering working with us!
