If you are providing the services you can help them by send them a PM direct.

If you can recommend a company that you have used that provides said services you can post it's name & contact here (provided it's not advertising your own company).

My daughter is 14. We live on the East Coast. Keep her in mind. I know she isn't experienced as other people might be, but she loves the little ones in our condo. She has watched others here and of course I only a few doors away!
Having mentioned that, there are often maids or other moms who are willing to child mind for other families. Ask around at your condo pool, which is where you tend to meet up with other children & their families near your child's age.

Advice for a mom of two teens...I lived in a different country form my relatives and too far from his when they were little and didn't know anyone well enough to leave them with. I wish I had, but we didn't get away from them when we could because we didn't make the effort to find someone. Don't make that same mistake. I think it is healthy for yourselves as well as for your children.

Hi, I have a soon to be 3 year old son and am also keen to find a babysitter, we're at Water Place on the East Coast and if anyone can recommend a babysitter, I'd be most grateful too!

Ditto I'd be happy to reciprocate.

Those nights out are becoming a distant memory.........

cheers
