I'm a single mother of 4 kids(elementary) and am having the hardest time tyring to find after school care who provides transportation to there facility or atleast a good babysitter who will come to my home and watch my kids for 3 1/2 hours top. I only work 3 days out of the week which is mon,tues, & wens. but has had no luck at all. I can't leave them alone by themselves so I call out from work alot so someone will be here with them. I'm loosing money because I can't go to work and don't know how much longer my job will be understanding to my situation. If anyone out there could help I would gladly appreciate it, thank you.

Check out sittercity.com...you can get a 10% discount if you use their services and use the coupon code from Mamasource. Do a search for providers in your area before signing up though, you don't want to pay for something and not find someone to watch the kids. I've used at least two sitters and am extremely pleased.

Hi D., my name is L. and I currently babysit a 14 month old and a 3 year old (both little girls), I also have a 2 and a half year old of my own. I own a minni van and I don't live far from palm coast. I am very interested in helping you out, since I could always use the extra money, but I also would like to expose my child to more children. She has a great personality, but can be shy around other children. I've been a stay at home mom since she was born and the only kids she been around is the two I babysit. So if your still in need let me know.

Most public schools have an extended day program that runs until 6 PM. Talk to your school and find out if they one. Another option would be to inquire about a local YMCA or Girls/Boys club and see if they have an after school program in your area. I taught in Orange County (Orlando) before becoming a SAHM this year and every school I knew of had some type of after school program.
Best Wishes and Good Luck!
