I am beginning to get a little discouraged. I have made several posts requested info on sitters in Lewisville to no avail. I am trying again and hope this will work. I am in desperate need of afterschool care for my 8 year old daughter. She goes to Vickery and would need to be picked up and kept until around 6p. I am willing to pay between $200-220 per month and will provide her snacks. If anyone knows a reliable, trustworthy female who does sitting, please contact me ASAP.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

What can I do next?

Doesn't LISD provide an after school program?

I feel your desperation and am truly sorry, I wish I could help, but living in Corinth over the Lewisville bridge, that would be too far to drive to help you out. Since there's only two months of school left, can you use a local daycare that picks up at your daughter's school? It would help you finish this year while you work real hard over the summer to find better arrangements. Also, get yourself up to UNT or TWU and find a place to place your need for a sitter, I bet there are many college age girls who would love an easy PT job like you are describing. Best wishes!

Hi S.!

Have you considered hosting an Au Pair?

Au pairs are foreign exchange students, young women (and men), ages 18-26 primarily from Europe & Latin America, that want to spend a year or more with an American family. They are fluent in English as well as their native

In exchange for a private room, board, a weekly stipend and an annual educational allowance of $500 they'll provide up to 45 hours of childcare (and related childcare duties) as a live-in nanny. They are in the USA on legal
visas and can also travel domestically or abroad with minimal paperwork. They are required to attend monthly au pair meetings, and obtain 6 hours of credit from an accredited school/college annually. They are screened, medically insured and experienced.

Here is just a short list of what our Au Pairs can do:
* Quality Coverage for up to 45 hours per week (you set the schedule!)
* Weekends/Nights are Possible
* Au Pairs handle Children's meals, laundry and clean up, pick up from school, activities.
* Children are exposed to new language and culture
* Most Au Pairs drive (so children's activities, school, etc. are easier to handle)
* They live-in -- so snow days / sick days are not a problem!
* Continuous local support for your local counselor
* Our Agency handles visas, flights, etc.
* Au Pairs usually stay one year -- but new rules allow them to choose an extra
* Our Au Pair Program is regulated by the U.S. Dept. of State

All Au Pairs:
*Participate in a careful screening process
*Are qualified 18 to 26 years old
*Are proficient in English
*Participate in an orientation and training program
*Enjoy children and have previous experience
*Express a sincere interest in living with an American family for a year
*Have successfully completed their country's secondary education.
*The entire program is overseen by the U.S. Dept. of State!!

We offer both a full year program and a summer Au Pair program. Host Families on the full year program have the option to extend their au pair's stay longer if needed.

Can they drive? Do we need to provide a car?
Drivers are a frequent request and they're certainly available. However, there is no need to provide a dedicated vehicle. Having access to a car for their duties is convenient for many households that don't have mass transit
options nearby. If you're located in an urban area with public transport then a non-driving au pair could work as well.

Just want to let you know that there is a special promotion going on right now. If you apply by May 31st you save $1000 off of our program fees! No application fee of $300, and an additional $700 off of our program fees for a total of $1000 savings!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!
