Childcare/babysitting location vicinity: West Medford on Winchester town line
Job description:
Looking for a loving yet firm long term caregiver for our two boys for Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30-6pm every week starting mid September. One is a typical 9-year-old and the other is 12 with Developmental Delays and more akin to a wily 7-year-old. We live in Medford and the ideal person will encourage both boys to be independent, yet step in if the struggling seems to go on for too long. They will let the kiddos get their crazy out but know when to step in and reign them in. They will be able to use redirection when the mood needs to be switched. They will be willing to help my eldest in the bathroom (if needed) and make sure my youngest gets his home work started. I work at the Dana Farber and as such any candidate would need to be fully vaccinated. We are looking for someone who is open and loving and who our kiddos will consider as one of the family.

Job description:
Hello Tufts students!

Friday position available--Ideally 9am -1pm but hours negotiable.

We are a West Medford family with a 2 year old, G, and while we have care other days of the week, we do not have Friday help (but we work from home). G is a happy, communicative toddler who enjoys going to the park (we are walkable to many), playing in the yard, or in our many playrooms. She also loves reading. All tasks would be around playing with her, prepping one snack, and one lunch. She naps from 1-3, so they day could be done at 1 if needed. We do have two very shy cats if allergies are a concern.

Email me if you're interested, we'd love to start immediately, but are of course cognizant of course schedules!

Job description:
Looking for someone to help part-time in the afternoons with afterschool care for 2 8yos in the West Somerville area.
Hours would be ~18/wk (2:30-5:30 MTThF and noon-5:30 W) and pay would be $25/hr. We're looking for pick-up at West Somerville Neighborhood School at 2:30 (noon on Wednesday half-days) and then transportation to one of our houses. Car is optional (as at least one house is in ~15 minutes walking distance) but preferred.
We'd also love to be able to have full-day coverage on teacher development days, etc. at the same rate, but understand that it's a lot to ask for a part time position to cover that.

5 Days sick leave
10 Days discretionary holidays
Full pay on days when one/both kids are on vacation (and no care is required) e.g. Winter break.
Full 5.5h pay on Wednesdays even when they are not half-days, since they're fairly random.
Small stipend (~$1/mile min. $5/wk) to reimburse driving expenses if you have a car and are transporting the children.
