PCS family in need of
Remote Learning Support and Childcare
Three days a week: Wednesday-Friday
8:30 am - 2:30 pm in Ossining home.
  • Two 1st graders in dual language program will need assistance to support and guide their remote learning (live interaction online with teacher and related assignments offline). This will include some outdoor time for daily exercise/recess.
  • Childcare component: This will take place in my home while parents are at work. Includes serving lunch and snacks and supervision.
As school schedules are evolving, and the spring semester remains unknown, this position will likely be needed until December 2020. If remote learning continues, then the position will remain active. Must have your own transportation. Metro North station is nearby and Bee Line bus stop is in front of home.
Please send resumes and questions via email to Lisa Nicotra at with the subject line "remote learning support" or call 917-692-1129.
