1) Professional Non Smoking Nanny Needed Immediately! (Charlotte)
Couple seeks dedicated, reliable, non smoking, educated, very clean nanny for our toddler. This ideal nanny is needed immediately. Rate of pay is $9.50 per hour, and you are paid via paycheck twice a month, on the 15th & 30th. Must have references, a clean, reliable vehicle, and proof insurance/valid drivers license. We want our child to be kept active with creative things to do every day such as reading, art, trips to the park/museum, etc. TV is OK as long as it is Noggin or another kid associated channel. We don't prefer stay at home moms unless you are certain you can handle your child and ours with equal attention. You must be very clean, with a warm demeanor and genuine liking for children. We are not looking for a BABYSITTER, we are looking for a DEDICATED, Loving, NANNY, there is a big difference. You must be at least 18 years of age. Our child would be kept in your home, until we've had 90 days to make sure all is well to be trusted in our home alone and a steady connection with our child has been established. We perform raise reviews every 3 months, and benefits are offered after 120 days. This position is taxed regarding your paycheck, and a contract will be put in place specifying all of our terms. We desire to have two trial days with you to make sure you are a good fit, and proceed from there. My ours(the mom #1) are from 9:30-6:30 M-F. Our child would need to be kept during these hours, and occasionally on some Saturdays/Sundays for "couple time" as one of us is in the Marines, so our time is limited and sparse together. This is an example of the regimen we'd need to be followed: 9:00am- Pick up of our child from my office Breakfast, breakfast snack upon arrival at your home(though our child would be fed something light before coming to you), interactive learning activities Noon/1:00pm- Lunch, more interactive activities, possible light nap not to exceed an hour and twenty minutes 4/5PM-Generous snack, as our child eats dinner at home. If you prepare dinner around this time, that would be fine if you feed them dinner, just preferably a snack and a small amount of dinner so they can eat at home with us. 6:30pm- Drop off of our child at my office. We are not paying over this rate per hour, and will not be covering any additional expenses. Leading child care centers charge $213.00 per week for 12 hour care, meals, pickup, and interactive activities and more for toddlers our child's age, so we are compensating well above the pay range. Our office is located in the Business district of University, so if the distance is too far for you, please do NOT reply. If interested, and qualified, please contact us immediately by replying to this ad with a valid phone number, and availability for an interview as we do need someone immediately. We are not interested in daycare centers, stay at home mothers incapable of handling more than one child, or people without their own home and transportation. We do not mean to sound difficult, we have just found we're having to spell every detail out as many people on this site are uncertain about their work capabilties, accepting our terms, and actualy possessing the traits we seek. Thanks a lot!

2) Re: Professional Non Smoking Nanny Needed Immediately!
"Our child would be kept in your home, until we've had 90 days to make sure all is well to be trusted in our home alone and a steady connection with our child has been established."
SO YOUR VALUABLES AT YOUR HOME ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAT THE WELFARE OF YOUR CHILD IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING. YOU WOULD TRUST SOMEONE TO KEEP YOUR CHILD IN THEIR HOME BEFORE KEEPING YOUR CHILD IN YOUR HOME?? STRANGE
"If you prepare dinner around this time, that would be fine if you feed them dinner."
YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL IF THE NANNY WANTS TO PROVIDE DINNER, "THAT WOULD BE FINE" - HOW KIND OF YOU TO LET SOMEONE ELSE FEED YOUR CHILD
"Pick up our child from the office and Drop off of our child at my office."
YOU CAN'T EVEN LEAVE THE OFFICE TO DROP OFF AND PICK UP YOUR CHILD? OR TRYING TO SAVE EXTRA TRAVEL TIME, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY OVER THAT HUGE $9.50
"Possible light nap not to exceed an hour and twenty minutes."
POOR CHILD HAS LIMITS ON HOW LONG SHE CAN TAKE A NAP. WOW. CONTRACT, YOUR TERMS, ETC. YOU DON'T MEAN TO SOUND "DIFFICULT"?? YOU SOUND LIKE YOUR CHILD IS A BUSINESS DEAL -- VERY SAD IF THE PAY WAS SO GREAT AT $9.50 AN HOUR YOU WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO TAKE THE TIME TO JUSTIFY IT IN COMPARISON TO DAYCARE, WHICH HOUSES MANY MORE THAN ONE CHILD AT A TIME, SO IN ACTUALITY YOU ARE CERTAINLY NOT PAYING ABOVE AVERAGE. YOU ARE ACTUALLY PAYING BELOW AVERAGE WHICH IS $10/HR, NOT INCLUDE PICK UP AND DELIVERY OF YOUR CHILD IN NEED OF A NANNY IMMEDIATELY -- IMMEDIATELY? GOOD LUCK FINDING SOMEONE AT ALL. I FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE.

3) LOOKING FOR CHILDCARE THIS EVENING (Midtown/Saddle Creek)
Hi, my friend Christina and I are looking for childcare for this evening so that we can have a single ladies' night out. We'd prefer someone high school or college aged who can watch the children at my place at 50th and Saddle Creek or we would be happy to have them at an established in-home daycare. We are paying $40 for both children and need childcare from about 8pm until 2 or 3 am if you watch them at my place or overnight (pick-up first thing in the morning) if you watch them at yours. The children are a sweet five year old girl named Emma and a highly intelligent 6 year old boy named William. This could turn into a regular babysitting job for the right candidate! Please email back with your phone number and details of your childcare experience. If you are under 18 we will have to meet your parents first! Thanks, Candice

5) Need a reliable babysitter (Durango & Flamingo)
I currently have a sitter but she's not very reliable. In the past 2 months she has called out 4 times and made me late at least 3 times. Not to mention that she can go through food like theres no tomorrow. But anyways... I'm looking for someone who babysits as a side job. A SAHM who just wants some extra money for themselves. Dont hit me up if you need this as your only source of income. I cant afford much. My husband was laid off last year for a little bit over a month. Luckily he found another job but doesnt make as much as before. We applied to get assistance so I can put my kids in daycare but the waiting list is so long. It's going to take a while. So, I have 3 kids. ages are 4 1/2 (she'll be starting school this year), 2 yrs and 10 months. My home or yours. But if it's my home I am going to admit that I monitor a lot of what goes on because I notice some stuff of mine went missing. But if you're an honest person then you have nothing to worry about. I'm up by Flamingo & Durango and work by Redrock Casino. You're welcome to bring your kids with you. I just really need someone reliable. We have no family up here. They all live in California. So if you can help out I would really appreciate it. And for those of you that always talk crap about moms asking for an affordable babysitter you need to mind your business. You have no right to judge someone because of their misfortune. You have no idea why they are in the situation that they are, so keep your comments to yourself. I use to babysit kids for an extremely cheap price to help out moms. I'm neither a crackhead nor do I mistreat kids. Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone that think they might want to babysit.

7) Looking for a Babysitter (Manassas)
I am looking for someone with reasonable rates. I am looking for someone who will treat my kids like you would treat yours. This means that No you are not allowed to let them walk all over you, but at the same time if i find out that you were mean for no reason or they are scared to go back to you they won't be back. I am also looking for someone who will meet up with me before I let you babysit my kids so that my kids can meet you and get to know you. If you know a little Spanish that is also great since my husband only talks about 50 percent English, and he will be the one to get them. I also need someone who is flexible with days not times but days. This would be a perfect job for a stay at home mom trying to make a little extra money. So this is my situation. I need someone who is willing to watch my kids in their house, and lives in Manassas. Someone who might even be willing to drop my kids off at my house when my husband calls b/c my hubby dosen't have a drivers liscense. I work at night as a server at Ihop. My husband is in construction which means he only works 1-2 days a week. I live with my mother and she is able to watch my kids some nights. So this might mean that I don't need you for one week and then need you 2 nights the next week. (This could also turn into 3 -4 nights a week when my husband starts to get more hours if the economy ever goes back up if you want it too.) I would be dropping them off at your house around 3:30-3:45 depending on where you live b/c my shift starts at 4. My husband would then be calling you around 7 (sometimes earlier sometimes later but never later than 8) to drop them off back at our house if that is o.k. You would not need to feed them at all. My husband can do that when he gets home. So what I am looking for is how much you would charge for about 3-4 hours of babysitting, and then the price of dropping them off at my house. You can either send me a hourly rate or a flat fee for all of it. Please don't send me a quote saying you want me to pay 20 dollars just because you charge so little dosen't mean I am going to be interested these are my angels, and I know that I get what I pay for. They are worth more than 5 dollars an hour. Oh by the way there ages are 3,4 and I included some pictures of them. Tell me when you send me your email why you think you would make a good fit for us. By the way if you only speak spanish, or if you know of someone who babysits and only speaks spanish that is fine with me as long as they fit all of the qualities I am looking for. Gabby is the one in the purple Elizabeth is the one in the orange.

9) Looking 4 a strict Nanny? (Las Vegas 89145)
Hello! I would like to start off by saying that being strict DOES NOT equal being mean. It means that you set rules and follow through with them (1 warning only!). I am strict but I have also learned to choose my battles. I have also learned that redirection and positive reinforcement go a long way! A little about me... I am a 23 year-old female with lots of love and energy. I have just recently moved to Las Vegas from Omaha, Nebraska and am looking for a wonderful family to join. I am very dependable and arrive to work a few minutes early. I am one of those people who think that if you are on time, you are late. I love working with children, helping them grow, and learn. I really enjoy helping a child meet all of their milestones (rolling over on own, walking, counting to ten, saying ABC’s in order…) My joy for my job can be seen on their faces every day! A little about my experience... For about 2 years I worked at a daycare for ages 6wks to 13 years. I also was an assistant teacher in a special education classroom for 2.5 years (ages K-6). Along with these jobs I have had nanny (ages 1-4) and babysitting experience (6mo-7yrs). This past summer I watched a 7-year-old downs syndrome child. We had a blast! * I am drug free. * A non-smoker. * I only speak English. * I have own car and license. * Please contact me for my references. * I am asking $10 an hour; but will consider lower. I am looking for something between 8AM and 5PM and 20-25 hours a week. However, I will consider more hours. Contact information: (702) 788-**** I hope to hear from you soon!

12) In need of Nanny for 2 little girls (Summerlin Ft.Apache/DI)
I need a nanny for my 2 1/2 year old and my 13 month old daughters. I work 30 hrs. a week, and Im looking to pay $125. I can'not afford any more right now as my budget is very tight. It's a very simple job though and my 2 little girls get along for the most part. I would need someone who is going to be very reliable and will take good care of my daughters. My oldest has a bit of a temper sometimes but all in all shes a pretty good girl and my youngest and the sweetest personality. I need someone to take care of them in my home and make sure that their dressed, fed and played with daily. I have a ton of DVD's for the girls and my oldest is in love with all the Disney princesses right now and Spongebob. They have a ton of toys and lots of space to play. I wouldnt be opposed to someone bringing their child as long as the kids will get along. My last nanny brought her youngest sister and her god-son with her and they beat up my oldest and now she has scars on her face. So another child the same age would be best so that they can play together. If you think you might be interested and you want to set up an interview, please email me, tehtigerlily@**** My name is Brittney, my daughters names are Lylee (Lily) Jayd, and DaneeLi. I hope to hear from someone soon.

An ISYN reader e-mailed the above Poster about her Ad:
15) *The e-mail:
$5.50/hour just because its overnight?! lady you get what you pay for, and I certainly hope you want better for your children than what you'll get for $5.50/hour! Did you do the math? Someone would be working for 11 hours and make a mere $60.50! The average rate for this kind of job would be $100+. Good luck finding quality care for a crappy rate.

Go screw yourself. You can sleep and make money! Where else can you do that? Go spread your unhappiness some place else.

When we do use someone, we use them quite often. I need someone that it reliable, as my husband is in a rock band, and if the babysitter bails, we could be in quite a jam. I am hoping there are some teenagers out there that are looking to make some extra money.
