When to use "respectively"?

I have been wondering what it means when people use "respectively" in, before, and after sentences. For example:> We are looking for a babysitter to pick up and supervise our kids ages> 6 and 3, respectively, on Monday and Friday.I don't know if this person used it correctly, but if they did what does it mean? If they didn't use it properly what would be the proper usage?Thanks in advance.
