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!

Part-Time Nanny/Babysitter (Medford)

Job Description: Hi there! We’re a Tufts Fletcher family living on campus through Summer 2023. We’re looking for weekday afternoon help with picking up our 6 year old from kindergarten at West Somerville Neighborhood School (by walking, three blocks away) on most days at 2:25 pm, bringing her home, helping with snacks, and keeping her occupied while mom works remotely from home and dad is at Fletcher. The job potentially would include driving (no more than 15-20 min each way) our child to afternoon sports/activities and then back to home afterward. We will provide a car with a car seat installed. We also have a 4 year old who needs to be picked up around 5:15 pm from daycare, by walking, two blocks away (by this time mom will probably be done work so you wouldn’t always have to lug both kids). We may be interested in having you work additional hours if you’re interested/available, such as on school days off, when the 6 year old has early dismissal on occasional Wednesdays (school dismissal noon), or an occasional evening babysitting session, but we can discuss those needs later. We are also open to two caregivers splitting the duties throughout the week–ideally, two individuals who already know each other so it is easier to coordinate/back each other up. Again, we’re only here for the current academic year (possibly to June/July). If you’re potentially interested, but not sure of all the details, please feel free to reach out to us so we can discuss!

Potential Start Date:  Late November or early December 2022 (to be finalized with you)

Work Days/Hours: Monday to Friday, 2:15pm – 5:45pm daily (approximately).  Other hours on an ad-hoc / mutually agreed basis.

Compensation:  $25 per hour (or potentially more with significant experience/qualifications).  Bonus for fluent Mandarin Chinese and/or Korean speakers if you use it with our children.

Location: Sawyer Ave, Medford (on Tufts campus)


  • Full vaccination and booster series for COVID-19
  • Prior experience caring for young children (with references as appropriate)
  • Clean driving history, valid driver’s license for use in Massachusetts
  • Pass an online background check (we will pay for it)
  • We especially welcome Tufts students (both undergraduate and graduate) to reach out to us if interested!
