Job Description: Hello, We are a family in West Newton looking for a part time babysitter for our joyful little boy starting January 2023. We would want someone who can commit through at least May 2023.

Our son will be 1 years old by then. We prefer 4 days a week, from 9 am to 3 pm, but could potentially negotiate the time schedule a bit. We are a short walking distance from commuter rail, so a car is not necessary, though preferred. The sitter’s job will be to carry out tasks associated with caring for the little one; diapering, playing, and feeding (light housework directly related to infant care such as his laundry and cleaning up after meal time, etc). We are looking for someone who is fun and enthusiastic about childcare and who will provide an enrichment environment for our son via age appropriate games, talk, play etc. (no screen time). We are a very loving and fair family and would like to find someone who is responsible and health consciousness as I am immunocompromised. We therefore require that the sitter is vaccinated for Covid-19 and up to date with the latest booster. Experience with my son’s age range is a requirement. CPR, First Aid Certification, required. An interest or educational background in early education and/or ability to speak Spanish, Portuguese and/or Cape Verdean creole is a plus.

[If the candidate does not have infant CPR certification we may be willing to cover the costs, if we find the right match.

Additional details: My husband works from home and I will be home at times, so there will always be a parent present. The sitter will primarily stay downstairs in the living room area where we have a play station/baby station set up for our son. We live in an area that is walking distance to several parks. We also have space for the sitter’s car. Thank you so much for reading this add! Please contact us if there’s interest; We will offer competitive pay that is commensurate with experience. We look forward to talking about the position in detail.

Job Description:
Hello! We are looking for after school help for our three kids (ages 3, 6, 7) starting the first week in October. Mostly, we need help coordinating school pick up and drop offs at after school activities. And snacks. So many afterschool snacks. The eldest loves Harry Potter and math, the middle one loves crafts and games, and the baby is a third child, so she just wants to do whatever the bigs are doing.

If you can get to our house (we are a little over a mile away from campus) and have a clean driving record, we can provide a car with carseats, etc but most everything is within walking distance. Hours are M, T, Th, F 2:45 -5:30 and Wednesday 12:30-5. The little one gets picked up at 3 every day and the bigs get picked up most days at 3:40 but Wednesdays at 1 because of early release days. We understand that most likely one person can't take all five days (though that would be great!) but let us know if you are interested in any of the days. After the summer, the children are very bored with us so they are excited to have literally anyone but us come and hang out with them.

Looking forward to talking to you!!

Job description:
*Looking for After-School Sitter 3d/week in West Medford
**We will offer a $1000 signing bonus to be paid $500 after one month and the remaining $500 after six months.

Our family is in a moment of transition as our youngest starts school full-time in the fall and our amazing nanny of 3.5 years will start a new job. We are looking for experienced after-school care for our two daughters, ages 4 and 8, three days a week. The job will involve picking up both girls from school (both in our neighborhood and easily walkable from our house), doing snacks, homework help, and taking them to activities (also in the neighborhood and actually easier to walk than drive/park). Mom works in a home office and is in and out throughout the day.

The schedule* we're looking for is:

Tuesday: 2-6 (oldest dismisses at 2:35, youngest must be picked up by 3)
Wednesday: 1-6 (oldest dismisses at 1:30, youngest must be picked up by 3)
Thursday: 2-6 (same dismissal as Tuesday)
*the above schedule is for 13 hours and the start time a little flexible. This schedule allows for coming to our house first before getting girls, but going directly to first school for pick-up might work best for you; we can come up with a plan together.

Pay is $25/hour and we're looking for someone available on the school year schedule (end of August 2022 to end of June 2023; non-paid breaks at Christmas, and February and April vacation weeks). We will offer a $1000 signing bonus to be paid $500 after one month and the remaining $500 after six months.

The location of their schools and activities in our neighborhood makes walking easy, but we are looking for someone who is experienced and also comfortable driving the girls if needed. Also, there's a tight connection between picking up the oldest at 2:35 and walking to get the youngest by 3 (it's doable, but tight!). We're looking for someone active who can meet the demands of care for these ages and be creative in balancing activities for their different ages and interests. It's also important that this caregiver cleans messes associated with their care or facilitates having the girls clean up after themselves (we love this!). Candidates must pass a background check, have a clean driving record, and solid references.

Last thing: if you are interested in more time next June (youngest daughter's school ends three weeks before oldest), this is something we'd love to discuss.

Thanks so much for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you! :)

Looking for someone (or a couple of people) to play with our super sweet 4-year-old daughter from 12-4pm and also our fun and curious 6-year-old son from 2:30-4pm after school 2 days a week (starting September 2022). We live near the kids' school, so you would do a very short walk to pick them each up at their respective times and otherwise just playing!

The "when" is a bit complicated: I work 2-3 days a week, so need help on those days. However, the days are not always the same, as I work in the hospital and the days change weekly, so this could be the same person or a couple different people. For example, if you are available at those times on Mondays/Fridays only, we can figure out a schedule that works for you - if I don't work Friday a given week, we would just use you Monday. I always have my schedule at least 2 months in advance, so you would know your schedule with plenty of notice!
My husband works from home, so would be in his office for questions/emergencies and would never be late to pickup at 4pm:)

Would love to chat more to figure out how to make this work so my kiddos have someone fun to play with in the afternoons!

Thanks for considering and hope your own school year starts off well!
