I know it is tough to think about summer with yards still covered in snow, but our schedules (and sanity!) this summer depend on finding great care and camps for our kids. Here are four fabulous summer resources I recommend.
- free listings to help you find that summer sitter, lawn mower, or administrative intern
- online video chat so employers and students can screen each other before investing the time for an in-person meeting
- student privacy – students will not put their personal information (name, phone, address) anywhere on the site, so they can wait until a private conversation before releasing their info to a “screened” employer
- social media integration – anyone who uses the hashtag #myfirstjob will have their picture on the FORCE homepage
Childcare in Silver Spring/Burtonsville/Olney
Wee Friends Daycare, Alice’s favorite place to hang and my go-to when I need a daycare provider, has room! Full-time and part time options are available for infants-school age kids. In the summer they take field trips and play in the beautiful backyard and school room. Check out my exhaustive post on this fabulous local, loving day care, and contact owner and educator Kathy Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org for complete information.
