Childcare/babysitting location vicinity: North End, waterfront area
Job description:
I am a busy lawyer who needs help with my adorable six-year old twins. Basically I need someone to pick up the kids after-school in our North End neighborhood, MT, TH, and F.

School gets out at 3:15, and I'd need you to stay with them until 6 at the earliest, and possibly later if that would work. End times can be flexible, but you'll usually need to feed them something--luckily they only eat the major food groups: chicken nuggets, pizza, grilled cheese and Mac and cheese. Sigh.

The kids are easy going, have a good number of activities, so you won't be bored--you'll have a decent amount of time where you'll only have one or no kids with you while you leave them at an acitivity.

The pay is $20/an hour, and you won't need a car, as everything is walking distance. We are easily reached on the orange, green and blue lines directly.

Hi! We are looking for a sitter on Friday afternoons approximately 1-5 pm.

We have 2 young children (Chloe 1.5 years and Jude 3 years). You’d be primarily responsible for Chloe. She typically naps 1-2 hours in the afternoon. Then you’d make her a snack and hang out (either in our house or in the neighborhood - walks, playground etc). My husband works from home in a separate space. You will sometimes also have to watch Jude (who gets out of daycare at 4:30 pm).

We are Covid cautious (all adults vaccinated, test ourselves frequently).

We could also use an occasional date night sitter if you wanted additional hours.
