This is a temporary position to take over my home daycare while I take some time off with my new baby (due in early October). Starting immediately until mid September, hours will be part- time; Starting with 10 hours per week and steadily progressing to full time. In mid September candidate will fully take over the daycare (8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday). When the baby arrives, I will be taking two weeks off in which time the candidate will care for a small amount of children (in one of my client's homes). After that two weeks, I will need the daycare fully operated in my home for a minimum of three months caring for four to five children. When I am ready to return to work the hours will steadily decrease until I am once again able to run the daycare interdependently.

I run a strict educational program and need someone who is able to learn quickly and run the daycare according to the guidelines I set. Candidate must be comfortable working while I am in the home and able to take instruction on the fly if needed.

Successful Candidate will:
- Have an educational background or equivalent with children (ECE, CYW, ECA)

Have you tried Kijiji? This is where I usually get my assistants from, but I don't ask for ECE, ECA, etc. since they are most of the time under my close supervision, and they are much more expensive if you want them to last :)

I'm also closing for 2 weeks, all parents have made alternate arrangements during that time. After that my assistant will take over under my supervision for a few months. I also have educational program included some part of the day, but I have made it easy for anybody to run it without needing a higher degree or too much work.

Yeah I have ads everywhere. I just saw that you could post here so I did.

Thanks for the suggestions. I need someone who I can trust to take the kids out in the community and I dont plan on being around all the time so I'd rather pay for the higher education. I want things run as close to the way I would run it myself and I'm able to afford rates.

my last assistant didn't work out (after almost 4 months of painful instruction) and I'm now almost 7 months pregnant so I need someone who comes with a certain skill set already in place

Maybe you could try posting at George Brown etc. where they offer the ece program. Maybe a new grad would be a good fit!
