Part Time Babysitter Available

Responds within 5 hours
Hi families, I'm Katie! I'm a 26-year-old full time healthcare/social work employee at one of the hospitals in Boston and live in the Back Bay area. I have been working remotely since March and am taking social distancing guidelines seriously. I am available for babysitting after work on weekdays and any time during the weekends. I have many years of experience working with children (ages newborn-teen) as a nanny, after school counselor, camp counselor and coach. I do not currently have a vehicle but am willing to travel around the Boston area and surrounding towns via public transportation and bike. Please feel free to reach out with questions and to learn more about me. I would be happy to talk with you over the phone. Be well

Katie has dedicated herself to fostering relationships with her family, friends, colleagues, and the community members that she serves as a social worker for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Katie knows what it takes to make strong connections, and she genuinely cares about all the people in her life regardless of their association. I have seen Katie engage and take care of many children over the years, including my four year old daughter, and they have all enjoyed their time spent with her, and they have all been cared for with a first-rate supervision, patience and protection. I couldn't recommend Katie enough!

Ryan F.|Boston, MA

$15-30/hr 6 yrs exp 22 yrs old

Weekend/Evening Babysitter

My name is Ryan! I just recently graduated from Suffolk University where I studied Sociology and Education. I started working with kids at a camp in the summer of 2015. Here I participated in outdoor and indoor activities with girls aged 7 to 14. I then worked at a daycare with children ages 4 months - 5 years old for almost two years in Washington DC. These past four years in Boston I have worked directly with the Program where I worked in daycare's across the city to provide equal opportunities for children preparing to transition to elementary school. Ultimately I am passionate about being a positive role model, influence, and support in the lives of children. A few fun facts about me are that I love being outside and cook, I play guitar, paint, and love to write. My creative mind has allowed me to prepare a number of fun activities for kids. I am a very responsible and enthusiastic person and am ready to take on all responsibilities and challenges set forth for me.

Ryan worked with our family supporting our 4 year old during remote learning (pre-K) for 5 months. Our daughter adored Ryan and all of the creative activities she came up with when they were not actively involved in online school. Ryan was on time everyday and was communicative about everything. She is respectful and trustworthy. I highly recommend Ryan; any family would be lucky to have her as a childcare provider.
