Description

A family with 8-year-old twins (boy and girl) is seeking a Family Assistant to help with childcare for their twins in the afternoon as well as household tasks. They have a 14-year-old as well but he is self-sufficient so care is primarily for their younger two. The kids get out of school at 3 p.m. and have a variety of extra-curriculars (gymnastics, basketball, martial arts). In the afternoons the FA will be responsible for picking the twins up from school in San Mateo and driving them to activities, then bringing them home and helping with dinner, bath and bedtime routines. The children are very active, energetic, bright and get along very well (except the occasional sibling spat here and there).

Household tasks include light housekeeping (cleaning up after meals, vacuuming high-traffic areas, organizing), family laundry, running errands and planning/preparing dinner for the family. Their ideal candidate is proactive – someone who notices what needs to be done and takes initiative. Additionally they would like this person to housesit when they are out of town and help take care of their two senior dogs.

The twins will be at the house with their dad Mondays, Tuesdays and every other Friday (the other days/weekends they stay with their mom in San Mateo). The FA will only be employed under the father.
