Babysitter for 1-year-old (Davis Square, Somerville)

We are looking for a babysitter to help watch our 1 year old daughter. I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Tufts. We are located a short walk from campus in Somerville, near Davis Sq.

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

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!
