Spanish-speaking Babysitter (Medford)

We are looking for a Spanish speaking student who would be interested in taking care of our 10 year-old twin daughters on Thursdays from 3 to 5pm approximately (3:30 to 5 if not available earlier), starting in September and throughout the school year. Our daughters had a Spanish speaking babysitter when they were younger, they fully understand Spanish and are able to communicate fairly well although they are not bilingual. They have been asking for someone who could help them keep practicing. Therefore we would like to hire someone whose native tongue is Spanish (or both English and Spanish), who is outgoing and would commit to only speak Spanish to them.

Activities would include playing various games with them -indoors and/or outdoors depending on the weather- and maybe helping them a little bit with homework. They will likely be back from school around 2:45pm but are old enough to go home alone, so arrival time for you is flexible. We live very close to Tufts, about 10 minutes walking on the Medford side.

Pay: $25/hour.
Non smoker please.
Experience with children a plus but not required.

If you are not available on Thursdays but are still interested, feel free to reach out all the same. Tuesdays 5/5:30 to 7pm could also be an option. Please email if you have any questions., (617)852-3454, ask for Delphine (Please leave a message if I cannot pick up.)

Seeking Babysitter near Davis Square

We are seeking an occasional weekend evening babysitter for our 14 month old daughter this summer and into the next academic year. Our baby is good natured and sleeps through the night (as long as she has her paci)! We’re seeking an occasional date night sitter who would predominantly be watching our daughter after she has already been put down to bed – so, mostly watching the baby monitor and being on site in case anything were to happen. The ideal candidate would be an experienced sitter who is a non-smoker. We’re located in North Cambridge, less than a half mile from the Davis Square T-Stop (we can make a visitor’s parking pass available to those who drive). We anticipate needing a sitter for a few hours 1-2 evenings per month. The babysitter would need to be comfortable with dogs. We have a 4 year old goldendoodle who will be in the home. The sitter is not expected to walk/care for the dog, but the dog will be there (probably sleeping/demanding attention), so a comfort with dogs is important.

Pay is $20/hour. Please contact if you’re interested!
