Recruiting Babysitters

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Nov 9, 2018 5:02:00 AM

I can't tell you how hard it is to find people that take babysitting seriously. During my time operating an agency that places babysitters for ongoing, permanent, or on-call positions I've heard and seen it all, and I'm still surprised at the laissez faire approach that people try to get away with when talking to me about why they want to babysit. If I were a parent I would want someone like me to take on the recruiting process. It is one of the worst parts of doing what I do. People don't show up for interviews, don't return your calls, show up late for interviews, come to an interview dressed inappropriately, and so many other things.

Get Ready for Back-to-school

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jul 27, 2018 5:29:00 AM

Believe it or not it is time to start getting in the mindset of going back-to-school. I know, crazy; it's only been a month or just over a month and it's time to think about the routine once again. There are a lot of things you can do now that will start your school year off organized, calm, and hopefully, easy to maintain. By setting up a system of keeping track of schedules, activities, chores, and academics you'll be able to feel better about the upcoming school year, and keep you on track.

Crafting With Babysitters 2

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jun 15, 2018 1:24:32 PM

Crafting doesn't have to be finger painting, glue, water colors, crayons, play-doh etc. It can also be about introducing children to different artists, and trying to imitate what they do. It is a lot of fun and educational. It also gets me excited to do things with them. This practice has also been about me educating myself on different appropriate artists that are fun to look at and imitate with children.
