Periodic childcare (Medford)

Medford family is seeking periodic childcare/ parental respite, primarily Saturdays or Sundays during the day. Our child is a sweet, smart, curious, funny, and creative 7 years old who is also exploring his/her/their gender identity and expression. We are a new family as our child is a youth from foster care. 

Previous childcare/babysitting or relevant experience required. Experience and/or knowledge about trauma and socioemotional behaviors preferred, but not required. Provider must also be someone who will not only accept, but celebrate child’s gender identity, expression, and fluidity. As legal custody rests with the Department of Child and Family (DCF), any childcare provider will also need to be open to a DCF background check in order to be approved to be alone with child.

  • Pay is $16 per hour

After-school sitter (near Tufts)

We are looking for someone to pick up our 5 year old daughter from Eliot-Pearson Children’s School on Tufts campus by 3 p.m. on Mon, Tue, and Thur. Would be willing to hire two people if needed to cover all three days. You do not need a car, but if you don’t have one you would need a bus pass for bad weather days. We are looking for someone to pick her up and bring her to our home (about 1.4 miles away), and watch her until about 5 p.m. She loves to ride her bike home, but again can also be driven or take the bus.
