I'm looking for someone who can help me on an occassional basis with taking my daughter to school or picking up when I have to work earlier/later...I'm willing to pay, I just can't find anyone. HELP!!!

My daughter is in Middle School, and the hours are 9:30 - 4. Most of the time I can work around this, but sometimes I have clients who want me to work a few hours later or earlier. I'm having a really hard time finding someone reliable who can help me out (I can usually schedule it a week or two in advance...) Anyone know of a service or maybe a mom who doesn't work full time who might be able to help?

  • People from all over the world looks at this site, so it would be hard to find someone in your area on here.... Many local papers and/or news station web-sites do allow for FREE ads in their classified section; have you tired listing an ad in your local newspaper or local news station website?

  • What an interesting schedule time for school. We start here at 8:05 until 2:35 at our Intermediate School. I know my BFF's neice and nephew have a later start like that and they are in Vallejo CA i would think that would be a great time for High School to start since they are notorious for sleeping in LOL

  • I would find out who does parent pick up in the afternoon everyday. Then, ask them if they would be interested in a few bucks to drive your child home. Also your child's friends parents might be willing. Same thing with before school. It's tough. I am fortunate to have a neighbor who works at the school. Could you ask the principal if you could post for the staff? A teacher or teacher's aide might consider it as well.
