Babysitter / nanny wanted / 2 FULL TIME DAYCARE SPOTS NEEDED ASAP!!!
« Last post by MummyOfBoys on September 06, 2016, 08:05:12 PM »
Hi there,

We are in desperate search of 2 home daycare spots.  The earliest would be September 19th and the absolute latest would be October 11th (my first day back to work).  I would like early and am willing to start paying asap if need be to secure the spots.  My sons are 1 and 2 3/4.  We are located at Kennedy and Lawrence and are willing to drive 10 to 15 minutes from our home.  The hours would be before 8:30am until 5:15-5:30pm.  If you have space, please contact me asap.  Email:  rebeccarogers99@hotmail.com or Mobile:  416-697-6598.  THANKS!  Rebecca

***The reason we are doing this soooo late is because we thought we were going to hire a nanny and that has all fallen through and now we are in a huge bind.

In need of a reliable, experienced, loving nanny for my soon to be 1 year old son on 3days a week (6hrs per day) basis starting September 2016 on Avenue Rd./ Dupont St., Toronto.
By any chance, can this group refer me to any interested, qualified babysitters?
Thank you in advance.

Running a Daycare / Part-time enrollments on demand
« Last post by hellomusab on August 01, 2016, 11:27:42 AM »
Hi friends,

I have a question from those running daycares. If I'm not wrong, on a given day a daycare has 2 types of empty spots:

1. Spots of children who have not yet enrolled full-time
2. Spots of children who are sick or on vacation

The idea is to generate revenue from the above available resources. What about a platform where you can list your available spots (1) and (2) and accept part-time registrations? This would be useful to parents who want part-time care, or tourists who want to leave their kids for a day or two.

Given that you have a temporary contract, it is legal to accept part-time booking for a full-time child who is absent.

What do you think about this? Do you think its a feasible idea? Would you like to have such a service? Curious to hear back!

Thanks,

Musab

Starting a daycare / Re: FYI: number of children allowed for home based child care
« Last post by Mike on February 12, 2016, 09:44:11 PM »
That's all of them. If you came here looking to see how many children you can care for, your answer should be above. It's a fact that over time, these figures may change. It was only a few months ago when Ontario made small changes to their unregulated restrictions. When a province or territory does change the limits, please post those changes here, preferably with the source. If everyone works together on it, this can be an always up to date fact page.  8)
