CHILDCARE NEEDED – I am a public school teacher looking for childcare in Abbotsford for my one year old daughter for Wed/Thur/Fri as of September (I am hoping to transition her gradually into care during August). I do not require care during school holidays, except for PRO-D Days as I obviously still have to work on those days. My preference is for a licensed daycare provider, but I am open to meeting with unlicensed care providers/ stay-at-home mothers who are members at Northview and part of my church family. I would need care to start around 7-7:30am (depending on where you are located) and would pick up between 3 & 5pm(depending on the day/ negotiable; most days would be closer to 3pm). I will require a CRC, references, and consider infant first aid/CPR (or previous experience with first aid/ health care) an asset. Wage is negotiable. Please contact Ashleigh at 778-988-5938 if you are interested. (10/03)
