Babysitter Position for Undergrad or Postbac

Babysit­ter Position

One of our grad­u­at­ing post­bacs shared this posi­tion with another post­bac this past year. She greatly enjoyed work­ing with this fam­ily. Here is what she had to say about the experience:

The job was a per­fect part-time job for me and another post­bac to have dur­ing the school year (we split babysit­ting dur­ing the week) because of the mother’s flex­i­bil­ity. The mother, Dorey, has had noth­ing but good things to say about our pro­gram and really wants to hire some­one with our com­mu­ni­ca­tion back­ground. The fam­ily is amaz­ing and located very close to cam­pus. I have had an excel­lent expe­ri­ence, the fam­ily is very involved and wants some­one who loves to engage with children.

Please take a look at the job posi­tion require­ments if you are interested!

After­noon Babysit­ter wanted for 2 small children:

* watch 2 chil­dren: tod­dler (1.5) and preschooler (almost 5)
* do light house­work (laun­dry, dishes, toy pickup) if not oth­er­wise engaged with chil­dren (e.g. tod­dler asleep and preschooler away)
* 3–5 days/week from 3p — 6p (this is flex­i­ble time wise, mostly con­cerned about hav­ing help close to the din­ner hour, but would also con­sider some morn­ings from 9:30a-12:30p or some­thing like that)
* Look­ing for some­one who is fun and engag­ing and enjoys play­ing with chil­dren, will­ing to spend time out­doors, etc.

On August 19, 2012, Palo­mar Health opened the doors to America’s newest, most mod­ern hos­pi­tal – and will change the way we know health care for­ever. As one of the country’s largest hos­pi­tal con­struc­tion projects and the first new North County hos­pi­tal in 30 years, the new cam­pus has already cap­tured the atten­tion of health­care pro­fes­sion­als world­wide for its use of nature, light and space, all designed to speed healing.

A Great Place to live and work

The 56-acre cam­pus known as Palo­mar West will expand in phases to meet the devel­op­ing needs of this North San Diego County grow­ing com­mu­nity. The hos­pi­tal includes plans for a total capac­ity of 600 beds as South­ern Cal­i­for­nia grows. The new facil­ity will also pro­vide expanded trauma and emer­gency ser­vices, heart surgery, neu­ro­surgery and vas­cu­lar ser­vices. In addi­tion, there are plans to build a Reha­bil­i­ta­tion Hos­pi­tal on the cam­pus.
