We are looking for someone to be with our sweet, responsible 3rd grader and one similarly sweet and responsible friend of his a few days a week/about 20 hours a week in the fall and into the winter while they are doing on-line school from home. The job would entail keeping them on-track during school hours, making sure they get up and move around during breaks, and taking them out to playgrounds and for walks around the neighborhood once the school day is done. Once they are vaccinated they will be going back to in-person school, but we will still need someone as many days a week as possible to take them out to playgrounds after school. We are looking for someone who is responsible, great with kids, and being very cautious in regard to COVID. If you're doing on-line classes that would be ideal. We live in Old Greenbelt. If you can provide your own transportation, then we will find a well-ventilated location for the school hours. If you cannot provide your own transportation, but can provide a well-ventilated area for school hours, such as a screened-in porch, we will drive the kids to you. For more information please contact me at

Professional development options and planning assistance are readily available. Hours of operation are Wednesdays 4:15pm-6:15pm and Sundays 9:00am-12:00pm, September through early June.
