Hi- We are looking for childcare from 2-4 p.m. Monday-Thursdays starting on January 3rd at our home in Wallingford. It will mostly just be for one of our sons (3 years old), while the other one (nearly 5 years old) is in preschool. We have a loving 9-year-old dog in the house, so must be ok with dogs. Also, vaccination for covid-19 is required (proof must be provided). I am a Bryn Mawr College professor, so I am excited at the possibility of having a Swat student help us out! Let me know if you are interested!

Elegant Bi-level Office/Residence in the Heart of Thoughtful College Town for Rent

Elegant Bi-level Office/Residence in College Town
4 Park Avenue Swarthmore, PA, 19081

? Elegant bi-level, 2-bedroom apartment with outdoor deck and parking spot in the heart of college town.

? Located in the middle of Swarthmore, one of the region’s most welcoming and appealing towns.The town has a regular farmer’s market in the spring, summer and fall, an excellent public library and the Septa Regional Rail stop is just adjacent to the town center — one half block from the unit.

? This apartment has been renovated very recently and it shows: wood floors, high-end kitchen and lovely lighting fixtures. The entry is on the ground level and opens into a flight of stairs directly up to the first level, which is the main floor of the unit: open-plan, huge room and more than enough space for a full dining area and a spacious, bright living room.

? This unique unit is a great place to locate a home-office or practice, or to escape the congestion of the city. It could be particularly well-suited to a counselor, coach, psychologist or psychiatrist seeking a home-office.
