This is a long-term after-school babysitting job for a joyful, funny, smart, respectful 5 1/2-year-old boy who speaks Spanish and English. We are looking for someone to pick up our son Drew from his school around 3:20 p.m., and babysit him until 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at our house a few miles away. A car isn't absolutely essential (it's possible we could make ours available and bus/metro is also an option). We'd supply all necessary gear for the transport (i.e. car seat, stroller). Our house is a great home base for play of all kinds, with lots of space, toys and supplies. We're also conveniently within a block of Stanton Park and the NE library. Pickup time/location: 3:20 p.m., at a school near the Capitol Skyline hotel by I Street SW and South Capitol Street. Babysitting time/location: Through 6:30 p.m., near 7th and C streets NE. More about us: Our son is a happy, thoughtful, observant boy who loves trains, animals and creating objects out of paper, yarn and other random supplies. Both my husband and I are newspaper reporters; we've lived in DC for 17 years. We are flexible on pay.

Job includes:

  • Driving children in sitter's car
  • Driving children in parent's car
