Child Care Provider:
We are looking for a part-time child care provider before and after school for 2 boys aged 6 and 9. Morning hours are
approximately 7:30am-9:30am with drop off at school. Afternoon hours start with pick-up at school at 3:30pm until 5:30pm. We are
looking for someone to work until the end of June 2020 and we will need care again in September, if available.
Responsibilities include:
- School pick-up / drop-off: the school is walkable but having a car would be ideal for bad weather days because it is 15-20 minutes
walking one way with kids.
- Childcare: we are looking for someone to focus on the children, develop and maintain routines and help them to keep busy after
school. Housekeeping or chores are not expected in this role and we would expect that the children tidy up after themselves with
encouragement. No meal preparation required except for helping the children get breakfast and after school snack.

Special Considerations:
The boys are high energy and struggle with self-regulation. They have many strengths which we can discuss during an inteview but
they have some behaviour challenges which includes defiance (undiagnosed). They are bright children and with someone to help
them at times to work through their emotions, they are very happy and nice to be around.
This could be a rewarding experience for the right person.

Requirements: 
  • Experience providing for multiple children ages 5 - 12
  • Vulnerable position police records check
  • Able to arrange own transportation or have a vehicle
  • Patient and consistent approach to managing difficult behaviour in children
  • Preference given to students studying to work with children OR with extensive relevant experience
