After-school Childcare (North Cambridge)

Our North Cambridge family of four (including our furry friend Mowgli)  is looking for some part-time, weekday, after-school childcare help for our funny, active, articulate, and kind 6-year-old boy.

We’re hoping to find someone, or two people, interested in 3.5–12 hours/week who would care for and play with our little guy, pick him up from school in North Cambridge at 3:00 pm, take him for lessons, or just work with him on chess, puzzles, and if possible Spanish. We would love it if someone could watch him from 3:00 until about 6:30 p.m. a few days a week (ideally Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday).

We imagine this could be the perfect opportunity for a college or graduate student — particularly someone studying or otherwise interested in being part of a family with a fun kid, a dog, and a super awesome food business. We are a Spanish and Bengali-speaking family. Any help with Spanish would be greatly appreciated. English is our preferred language :).

There’s also the possibility of continuing with slightly different hours during the spring semester and perhaps even the summer, as well as weekend and nighttime sitting.

Compensation could be $20-25/hour, depending on experience. Parking will be reimbursed.

Having a car is a requirement because, on some days, he needs to go for lessons in Somerville or Cambridge, which are within driving distance. 

We look forward to hearing from you. If interested, please contact Brinda at sen.brinda@gmail.com

After-School Childcare for Kindergartener (Davis Square, Somerville)

Our Davis Square family of four is looking for some part-time, weekday, after-school childcare help for our loving, active, articulate, and creative 5-year-old kindergartener.

We’re hoping to find someone, or two people, interested in 5–10 hours/week, who would care for and play with our little guy from school pickup in Porter Square at 2:35pm until about 5 or 6pm a few days a week (ideally Tuesday, Thursday and Friday).

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.

There’s also the possibility of continuing with slightly different hours during the spring semester and perhaps even the summer, as well as weekend and nighttime sitting.

Compensation could be $20-22/hour depending on experience. 

Having a car isn’t a requirement, because school is walkable (or a direct bus or T trip) to our house, but someone with a car would be a bonus. 

We look forward to hearing from you. If interested, please contact Andrew at andrew.sessa@gmail.com
