Evening Babysitting for 3-year-old (Arlington)

Hi! We live in Arlington and are looking for a babysitter for our 3-year-old. He is a sweet, fun, easygoing kid.

Looking for occasional weekday evenings and occasional weekend afternoon/evenings. Responsibilities during evening hours may include helping him with his dinner, bath, and bedtime. This is a perfect opportunity for a college student, as he goes to sleep early and you can get paid to do your homework until we return.  Compensation $20-25/hour depending on experience. Our house is easiest to get to by car, although you could get there by bus if needed.

Please contact Chrissy at if you are interested!

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
