Babysitting Opportunity (Somerville)

We are seeking an after school caregiver for our third grader in Somerville ( We live off Broadway in Winter Hill).  We need someone on M/W/F 2:30- 5:30 with occasional Wednesdays from 12:00 – 5:00 due to half days.  It could involve an occasional pick up of my sixth grade daughter in town after sports as needed during those hours. If you need more hours we could include a weekend night out too.

We will guarantee hours for you and you will have all holidays off.

This job is about picking my son up safely from school and giving opportunities to have fun with friends or activities while we work.  I can connect you to previous caregivers so you can learn about us as a family too.

This person will have a car.  Responsibilities include: driving, taking son to play dates and scheduled activities, hosting and supervising play dates, overseeing homework.  You must be reliable, responsible and connect me to references that validate your good judgement.  Additionally you must be Covid-19 vaccinated and a non-smoker.   I am willing to give a travel stipend of $10 per week on top of the $25 per hour wage.  My kids have had babysitters their whole life and are used to respecting a caregiver beside their parent.  There is no housework, rather you will be encouraging him to do the chores in the house.

If interested, please contact Kerry.j.robert@gmail.com or text 857-523-5894

After school sitter (Winchester, Lexington/ Burlington)

Hello Tufts Students!

I am looking for an after school sitter for 3 children (12, 9, 6) who can pick the kids up from Winchester and drive them to their parents’ homes in Burlington or Lexington (depending on the week) or to appointments in the same general area.

The kids are neurodiverse and twice-exceptional (and sociable and fun) so experience working with 2E kids is a huge plus!   I’m a PhD student at Tufts in mechanical engineering and HRI, and the children’s father is a software engineer.

The right candidate is vaccinated (COVID-19 and otherwise!), a safe driver, reliable, and a good communicator (I prefer text).

Proposed pay is $30/hour with a 3-hour minimum per day, and could be weekly M-F 3-6, or fewer days or alternate weeks, depending on your availability.  If you don’t have a car, we can potentially work something out for you to use mine for driving the children.
