Job description:
My husband and I are looking for someone to help us with childcare several days/week for our (relatively) newborn baby for when we’re both required to be back at work in mid November. We will both be primarily working from home and can be available throughout the day, but would like somebody whose main focus can be on our son who will be just about 5 months old then. As of now, days/hours will likely be Monday and Tuesday 9 am - 4 pm. We’d also love to have someone who is interested in doing an occasional evening so we can go out. We’re looking for someone who will be creative, active, and engage with our son. Experience with childcare and overall love for kids/babies is a must! It’s also extremely important to us that any applicant is adhering to COVID safety guidelines. Please feel free to email me your resume and/or to contact me with any questions!

Job description:
We are looking for an afternoon babysitter for our children (3 and 6 yo) at our house in West Medford while both parents work from home. The hours are 1-5 pm and start date could be as soon as November 9th.

Responsibilities would be to play with the kids at our house or nearby park, and to pick up our oldest from school at 2:30pm on days that he has in-person learning. The school is 0.8 mi from our house and our car would be available if needed.

We are taking COVID precautions seriously, following distancing and mask-wearing guidelines, and would ask that our babysitter would do the same.

Looking for a fun and engaging sitter for an 8 and 5 year old in Arlington for after school help. Kids will be home from school and need help with snacks, homework and playing. Wednesdays from 1 or 2pm until 5:30 is ideal but also flexible to offer more after school hours if needed. $20/hour and car is needed since our house is not accessible via public transport.

Job description:
We are located in West Concord and are looking for a short or long term, part time caregiver for my daughter, a wonderful, bright and warm 3. 5-year-old who is autistic and has her special mix of sensory challenges and emotional/social quirks accordingly. E is very verbal and loves books, dancing, painting, and playing. And animals, horses in particular :). We are not into behavioralist interventions (ABA), because it isn't a good fit for our family. Instead we have been doing a lot of OT and Floor time play therapy with E.

In the perfect world we would find a sitter who could support E in play therapy- we would love, for instance, to have you join in on therapy sessions with our OT so that you felt on the same page as us in that respect. In any case a caregiver would have to have a similarly gentle approach and be experienced and warm. A graduate student would be preferable to a college student probably.

Job description:
Hi! We have a 2 and 4 y. o. and are about to welcome a newborn -- any day now! We're looking for a warm, helpful, easy going person to join our family for a few weeks and help as we transition to becoming a family of 5. The job will involve watching the older boys (as much outdoor play as possible!), possibly some household tidying, and possibly running errands or helping with the newborn -- we'll adjust as we figure out what works best for everyone.

We are very cautious about COVID and see very few folks outside our family. We're looking for someone taking precautions equally seriously.

About us: Both parents will be home so it's important that we mesh well! We're a down-to-earth, thoughtful family that loves to be together and spend time outdoors. We try to take life slowly, enjoy the present, and give the boys as much opportunity as possible to just play and explore.

We're quite flexible with hours & days of the week but are aiming for approx 15-20 hrs per week. We're currently looking for help for 3-4 weeks starting asap until late Oct but if it goes well for everybody, there's a possibility to extend. Thanks for considering!

Childcare/babysitting location vicinity: Central Street and Norwood in Winchester
Job description:
We are the parents of Ginny, a bubbly, sweet, creative 10 yr old with ADHD and other learning challenges (speech, processing). She loves art and skateboarding. Ginny is currently on the hybrid-learning model at Ambrose Elementary (Winchester) and works remotely 3 days/wk: Mondays + Tuesdays (8:30 -12:30 both days) and Wednesday (10:30 - 2:30). She does get services and is on an IEP, but not considered serious enough to qualify for a more intensive program at school. Our concern is that she could fall behind academically during her remote days (the instruction on these days is entirely self-guided). We're looking for monitoring of her online school, helping her through the academic piece, but also playing together, making lunch, any other activities/outings are great. I also have a 13 year old boy (8th grade), but he is mostly self-sufficient. Any help during this M-W window is greatly appreciated - timing and days are flexible. We look forward to hearing from you - thank you!
