Occasional babysitter (Ball Square)

My wife and I are looking for an occasional babysitter for our eight-year-old daughter.  We are looking for someone who can arrange their own transportation to and from our house in Ball Square (near the new Green Line stop and buses), non-smoker, CPR certified, vaccinated for Covid, and okay with 3 cute and non-aggressive cats.


Responsibilities would include playing, reading books, helping with homework, serving dinner, and helping her get ready for bed. We would pay $25/hour.

Interested candidates can reach out to Marc via email at marck.harmon@gmail.com or via phone at 781-960-3251

Babysitting Opportunity (Somerville)

We are seeking an after school caregiver for our third grader in Somerville ( We live off Broadway in Winter Hill).  We need someone on M/W/F 2:30- 5:30 with occasional Wednesdays from 12:00 – 5:00 due to half days.  It could involve an occasional pick up of my sixth grade daughter in town after sports as needed during those hours. If you need more hours we could include a weekend night out too.

We will guarantee hours for you and you will have all holidays off.

This job is about picking my son up safely from school and giving opportunities to have fun with friends or activities while we work.  I can connect you to previous caregivers so you can learn about us as a family too.

This person will have a car.  Responsibilities include: driving, taking son to play dates and scheduled activities, hosting and supervising play dates, overseeing homework.  You must be reliable, responsible and connect me to references that validate your good judgement.  Additionally you must be Covid-19 vaccinated and a non-smoker.   I am willing to give a travel stipend of $10 per week on top of the $25 per hour wage.  My kids have had babysitters their whole life and are used to respecting a caregiver beside their parent.  There is no housework, rather you will be encouraging him to do the chores in the house.
