Hello, I posted months ago about moving to Chapel Hill from Boston and received some great suggestions - thank you! Now that we are here, I am hoping for more great local advice... I will be starting part-time work in the next month or two and am going to need child care 2 days a week, from about 9a-2p. I was thinking that it might be a good job for a student, since we live relatively close to UNC, but wasn't sure if there is a way other than craigslist to go about finding someone? Any advice/suggestions?
Mama to DS 8/2006 and DD 4/2010 with expected 2/2013
You can put an ad in "The Daily Tarheel" which is the UNC free newspaper. When we lived there I found my part-time childcare through the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Mother's club. Unfortunately, our old childcare provider no longer does it. TriangleMommies.com also has some good recommendations, especially through the Moms on the Clock forum. They also have a very strong AP-Natural Living community. Good Luck!!
