We are a family with three kids: 6-year-old boy, 3. 5-year-old girl and a 1. 5-year-old girl. We need consistent help during the summer. Our kids love to be active and play outdoors. They love throwing balls, riding bikes, going on walks and simply playing with dirt! We have a great playroom with space to play pretend, which they love to do.
They need help directing them to pick up their toys and to communicate their thoughts and ideas to each other. We talk about being "problem solvers" in our family and strive to teach them how to compromise and find solutions to their disagreements. That might look like helping them talk through sharing a toy, making up rules to a game or sharing ideas of what happens next when playing "family".
We're looking for someone who has a great imagination and will jump into their imaginative world with them! We also would like someone who will speak to our children with kindness and respect. We follow gentle parenting practices and would like our caregiver to do the same. This means validating feelings while firmly holding boundaries with kindness.
