A full-time single parent moving to Menlo Park in June is seeking an engaging, collaborative Family Assistant to help with both childcare and household tasks. Her two children are 5 (girl) and 8 (girl) years old. Her daughter loves arts and crafts, imaginary play and reading, while her son is very active and passionate about football and basketball! Mom works from home beginning at 7 a.m. and needs help with morning and afternoon care. Responsibilities include school drop-off and pick-up, driving to extra-curricular activities, light tidying, preparing dinner for the family, light pet care, and family laundry. Mom travels for work abroad twice a year so it’s important to find someone with flexibility to do overnights while she is away (7-10 days).

Afternoon Shift: 2:45 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
