Childcare/babysitting location vicinity: Hurley St & 5th St, in East Cambridge
Job description:
We have two lovely children and two demanding full time jobs! The kids (18mo and 3yo) are in daycare every weekday until 3pm. We are looking for someone to help out with childcare in the afternoons, roughly 3-6pm four days per week. Duties would include

- picking up the two kids from daycare
- strolling them back to our house in East Cambridge
- keeping them busy (at a playground, or at our house)
- offering provided snack.

The above details are negotiable; by talking with you we might be able to work out another arrangement which also works well.

In July and August, the kids will be at the same daycare in Kendall, about 10 minute walk to our place. Starting in the fall, they will be at separate daycares in central Cambridge, about a 20-25 minute walk total.

Ideally, we could find one person to work through the summer and the following school year. But, these our are kids, and we want them in the best possible hands! So we're also interested in people who can just do summer or just do fall.

To learn whether you'd be a good fit, we'd like to hear a little about your experience and expectations, and also to talk to people with whom you've worked in similar roles.

Job description:
Hello! We are neighbors looking for a full-time nanny (M-F) for three hours in the morning for one household and five hours in the afternoon for the other. We live within walking distance of each other, and our families are good friends. The oldest daughters are also good friends.

The first family has an almost-four-year-old whose preschool closed due to covid. She is re-enrolled for the fall, but this job involves playing with her in the morning and giving her snack. Looking for a creative and loving person to carefully take her to local playgrounds and clean up whatever projects you do. She has an older sister in remote second grade that will be occupied with school while you are here. We are looking for someone who has worked with younger children. Are you familiar with this age and their safety in an urban environment? She likes her scooter! She is mostly potty trained.

The second family has an almost-six-year-old and an almost-eight-year-old. Both are in remote school (kindergarten and second grade). We are looking for someone who can serve the children lunch and help them transition to playing after school… and play! And manage clean up! There is a trampoline in the backyard and several parks nearby.

Protection from covid is something we take seriously. We have medical issues, so we would like a mindful sitter that maintains protections and does not enter into enclosed spaces for an extended time indoors (outside her pod).

We could use someone immediately, but we are also willing to interview candidates who get out of school in May. We are interested in keeping the full-time nature of the job through June. During the summer, we would like to have a sitter, but we are willing to be flexible if there are things that you want to do… and are planned ahead. We will take some vacations, too. We can talk this through at an interview.

If you are interested in either the morning or the afternoon part, let us know, too. We thought the job would be more desirable as a full-time position, so that is why we are posting this way. The rate is $22-25 per hour. We have payroll set up to take out taxes and ensure your benefits.
