Seeking Afternoon Babysitter

We are looking for an afternoon babysitter, primarily on Wednesdays, for our 1.5-year-old son. The hours on Wednesday would be approximately 2:30pm –  7:00pm. Occasionally we may need help on Mondays, but we are more flexible for that day. 
We are looking for someone who loves children and has experience with little kids. Our son is sweet, active, and playful. He loves being outside, playing in our yard, walking to the pond, pushing his dump truck, and reading books. He is more hesitant around people he does not know, so we would like to find someone who is patient, reliable, and can build a relationship with our son. We also have a 14 year old daughter but she will be at an afterschool activity/sport during the afternoon and evening so most of the care will be for our youngest.
We would love to start working with someone now so our son can start feeling comfortable with a new person. However, our schedule is flexible for the Summer so we can offer different hours if needed. (In September our Wednesday schedule starts). We live in Medford, close to Wrights Pond.  
Requirements: We are very COVID conscious and require COVID vaccination + booster. We would also require the sitter to rapid test the day of sitting (we will provide the tests). We would also test and send our results before your arrival. We are fully vaccinated + boosted.
