We are a family with a 1 year old and a 3 year old and we need an evening sitter 2-6 times a month for when we need to go out in the evenings.
The kids will be in bed so we are looking for someone who will come and study / watch TV from 7:30 – 10:30/ 11pm while we are out. Pay is $20 / hr No cleaning, laundry, housework needed – just someone reliable and responsible who will be at the house while they sleep.

We are looking for someone to drive our 7 year-old son home from his after-school program on Mondays and Fridays at 5:45pm, and possibly to and from other activities on other days. This is a short drive, from Winchester to Arlington. There is a definite possibility for this to become a larger and long-term gig, especially once I return to work after maternity leave.
We are looking for someone with their own car and a clean driving record.
If interested, please email Letizia Allais at email@example.com.
We’re looking for a caregiver to pick up our son from his preschool at 11:30 a.m. in Bedford and watch him in our home in Bedford in the afternoon until 5 PM. We’d need coverage 2-5 days per week (number is negotiable per your schedule). A car is a requirement, as we need you to pick him up from school. We would provide the car seat.
We are in the process of getting him diagnosed, but we suspect he has one or all of the following: ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and/or ASD. He is an adorable and charming boy with lots of strengths, but he can be challenging, so we’d prefer a caregiver with special needs interest and/or experience.
We also have a 4-month-old, typically developing, daughter. She will likely be in daycare all day long, but we could ask for you to care for her too on occasion.
Since our son will likely be napping for most of the afternoon while you’re watching him (he usually takes a 3 hour nap), we hope for someone willing to do light housework around the house (laundry, dishes) while he’s sleeping. But when he’s awake, he is obviously the higher priority.
Interested candidates can contact Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you!
We are looking for a babysitter to care for our son James occasionally. James is an energetic and happy little one who loves legos, books, imaginative play, and music. Potential activities include giving James dinner, putting him to bed, and, most importantly, playing. No housework or cooking is expected, though we ask you to work with James to put toys away and clean up from any meals. Experience caring for toddlers preferred. We’ve had babysitters from Tufts in the past and have typically had them care for James 2 to 4 times a month, usually on Friday or Saturday evenings/nights, but hours could include weekend days or occasional evenings during the week if available. Salary is $15 to $18 per hour.
If you’re interested, please contact Emily at email@example.com with a brief summary of your experience and interests.

Hello – My name is Jeanette and I am looking for a reliable sitter to help care for my three kids (ages 5, 3, 15 months) one or two afternoons a week from 12:30-6:00. The days I need are any one or combination of Monday, Tuesday or Thursday afternoons.
The job primarily entails just playing with and engaging the kids in any range of activities – they love just about anything (legos, arts and crafts, pretend play, building, reading, etc.) – especially when we have a babysitter here to do it with them! There is no expectation for any cooking or housework, just having fun and keeping everyone safe!
We live in Somerville, very close to the Tufts campus, directly across from the Tufts track and fields. If interested, please contact me via phone/text at 781-883-0567 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
