A place for moms to connect
Hi! I'm looking for someone to care for my special needs child while I am at work. He is 2 years old, and 26 pounds. He currently goes to daycare, which I am happy with for the most part except for the class size. He has 26 kids in his classroom and does not get the individual attention he needs, but all the germs associated with school. He cannot sit, stand, crawl or walk yet due to several developmental delays ( he goes to physical and occupational therapy twice a week.) My husband's schedule is a little weird, I work everyday during the week, but his days off vary. If you would be interested in taking care of my special little man, or know someone who would, please let me know. Thank you!
Please check out sittercity.com, babysitters with special needs qualifications are listed. I have found several good nanny/sitters this way
I highly recommend Twinkletoes Nanny Agency in Gainesville. All of their nannies are thoroughly screened.
From their website: Twinkle Toes Nanny Agency offers hourly services, full time nanny care, part time nanny care, overnight care, after school care, and mother's helper services. All of our services are performed by nannies who are fully screened and have passed a criminal background check, a civil background check, a drug test, social security number verification, driving record check, and are CPR certified for infants and children.
We found a great babysitter (Rachel) through this agency. Here's the website for more info: www.twinkletoesnanny.com
