Babysitting/part-time nanny job in South Boston

Our family of three is looking for some part-time childcare help for our just-turned-four-year-old, starting around the second half of June and extending through early-September (if possible). We’re in South Boston, right over the Broadway stop on the Red Line. Hoping to find someone interested in 15-20 hours/week, who would care for our son from early afternoon to early evening, three to four days a week. Our little one is active and curious, loves scooting, playgrounds, building with blocks, reading with grownups, visiting libraries and museums and more. We have memberships at most of the local kid-friendly museums and zoos, and easy access to a pool for hot days. Looking forward to hearing from anyone interested with early childcare experience, to share more about our family and needs and learn more about you. To note: There is also the possibility of continuing with some late afternoon hours during the next school year.

Compensation: $20-$22/ hour
