PT Sitter/Nanny in South Boston

Our little family of three is looking for some part-time afternoon childcare help for our cute and curious just-turned-three-year-old, starting in early-to-mid June and extending through mid-September. We’re hoping to find someone interested in 15–20 hours/week, who would care for and play with our little guy from early afternoon to early evening, three to four days a week. We’re flexible on exact hours and days. We imagine this could be the perfect opportunity for a college or graduate student — in particular someone studying or otherwise interested in early-childhood education.
