|LIST YOUR DAYCARE! FIND A DAYCARE!|
Hi From Canada
Hi everyone!! I'm a proud mom of a 9yr old boy. Now that it's a new year .. just turned 40, I wanted to get back into what I enjoy doing .. Caring for kids! Seems I've been caring for kids most of my life .. friends/family's kids!
I recently placed an ad looking for (4) infant - preschool age. A lady responds in need of a 'sitter' for her 1yr old girl and 4yr old boy, who attends the same school as my son, every other day. I really wanted to stay away from before/after school care... have not purchased carseats and didn't plan on lugging 4 little ones to the school, plus my son.
So being the nice person I am, changed my plan a little bit .. taking on her 2 kids plus one more, for now. I can fit 3 carseats in my car .. the long hike is just too much for little ones in the cold winter months. The mother has agreed to purchase carseats for her children.
THEN .. the mother emails me and says her friend is willing to help her out part-time and is only charging her $45/day .. and she's debating whether or not to use me full-time or part-time .. part-time would be the days her son goes to school!! Umm .. NO!!
I agreed to take on her kids because I can really use the money (Christmas .. uuugh) .. if she can't use me full-time I won't take them at all .. especially not for before/after school when I didn't want that in the first place.
I've also taken a pay-cut. My fees were/are $30 a day for full day .. $20 half day up to 4hrs .. $50 a day for siblings. She talked me down to $45.
Tell me it gets better! I just feel like I'm bending over backwards here .. and I haven't even met her yet! LOL
