Stay at home mom of 1

After struggling for years to keep my job in safety risk and have my child cared for, I could no longer with the options available. I went through numerous nannies, au pair, home care and licensed day care. But finding somebody capable and available in this area was extremely difficult. Wait listed on before and after school program for 2 years but still unavailable. So I decided it would be best for all to stay home. I understand the struggle, especially since I’m a single mom. I tried agencies, the federal caregiver program, whatever was available, which wasn’t much. A wee watch rep even called the area ‘the Bermuda Triangle’ and said they hadn’t had a provider ‘in years’. Getting to work was hard enough but any other time, almost impossible. So why fight it anymore. Now I am offering care to those who seek it. Me and my 6 year old, grade 1 student at Corpus Christi Catholic school are available for others now. I have a large child friendly home with a spare room if naps or sleepovers are needed. We have trampoline and above ground pool in the summer the kids love and only 4ft deep but carefully watched. Empty when not in use. Allison park is a short walk or sometimes in the winter we go to indoor playground. My son likes video games and hot wheels but I have lots of craft supplies and other things if your children aren’t. We are vegetarian, but have no issue providing meat to those who do enjoy it-not judging. I have in the past had other older children in my care. I also foster one teenager fron China who goes to Hillfield Strathallan and the bus comes to the neighbourhood to pick him up. If you would like some child care for yours, please contact me to discuss. I’m also into swapping time. If your child goes to Corpus Christi, Ray Lewis, Hillfield Strathallan or any other school within reasonable distance, I can possibly to pick up/drop off to school or bus. Occasional evenings and weekends are ok too. As well as day care through the day. Contact me and we can discuss if an arrangement would work out for us both ☺️
