Hello - I was devastated yesterday to learn that our much-loved care provider for our 2yo has to find full-time work asap. We are back on the hunt for someone exactly like her. :-)
I randomly found our current care provider on Craigslist. That was a lucky find, but I ran expensive background checks on her and her husband and don't want to do that again unless I have to. I need help! I want to post this ad on care.com. What do you think? Is it too much? The bottom line for us, besides experience and safety, is compassion. We believe in attachment parenting and I have a hard time communicating what it is that I want from a child care applicant. Any feedback is welcome.
Compassionate, dedicated care provider needed.
Seeking child care for our 2 year old daughter. We’re expecting our second child in May, and will need care for him/her as well in late summer.
We would prefer care in our home, but can be flexible for the right person. Schedule is... beginning as soon as possible. Moms of young children are welcome to apply; we would love for our daughter to have a play mate.
Our daughter loves to have adventures, sing songs, read books, and snuggle! A great candidate for this job would have experience caring for toddlers and infants and an understanding of child psychology and development. We're looking for someone who has lots of patience, likes teaching our daughter new things, and understands the importance of open communication with parents.
Please include salary expectations in your reply. We look forward to hearing from you.
