I have a beautiful, wonderful toddler. I hate to leave her and go to work but I really don't have a choice. I've been searching for childcare. I would love for her to be with someone that I really like and is crunchy too. We're an attachment parenting family (sort of). We're vegan and we co-sleep. I wear her a lot. She loves to play outside with water, dirt, mud and whatever else she finds. She also loves worms and bugs, little wooden cars and that sort of thing. I would really like an AP SAHM to watch her with maybe another toddler. Does anyone know someone who might be interested near West Mt. Airy in Philadelphia? The pay wouldn't be spectacular but maybe someone looking for extra cash and is very trustworthy. Thanks!

Hey! I am in W Mt Airy as well. When my daughter was 9 months old, I went back to work as well. My very close friend at the time, who is really into AP everything and just lovely overall, had started her own in-home care. She is also in Mt. Airy. I think she has expanded her practice a little bit since then because she has hired someone else as well. She is *wonderful*... she got my child to nap using gentle methods (never, ever left to cry) and is just so warm and lovely and I an go on and on. She incorporates mindfulness into her practice all the time and is a beautiful practicing Buddhist. Her practice is called Under the Willow Tree. Again I can not stress this enough---- if AP-style care is what you are looking for, this is it. 


PM me if you want more details and contact information.
