Great Part Time Jobs Available Today!

TLC NannyAre you reliable and do you love working with kids?  TLC for Kids has flexible part time jobs with competitive pay and great hours!

TLC for Kids offers many types of nanny positions (full time, part-time, and after-school), but we also offer temporary babysitting positions.  These temporary jobs are great for students!

As a TLC temporary nanny, you have complete control over your own schedule—there is an online calendar where you post your available hours. The calendar lets the agency know when you are available, so when a family calls and requests a sitter for Monday from 9am-5pm, they know they can call you for the job. This type of scheduling allows you to go to school, maintain your social life, volunteer, etc.

Another perk of being a TLC sitter is the pay:  a minimum of $12/hour (most of the families also tip their sitters). You always get paid for four hours of work, even if you only work for three. For example, if a family only needs a caregiver from 3pm-6pm, they are required to pay their sitter for four hours worth of work. You can also earn more money by taking multiple jobs a day. If you work for one family from 7:30-4:30, it is easy to get another job that goes from 5:30-10:30. The more you work for TLC for Kids, the more families start to request you and the more your income grows.

Not only is being a temporary babysitter profitable and flexible, but it is also a lot of fun! TLC for Kids caregivers are expected to show up to a job with a blue TLC for Kids bag packed with fun, age-appropriate activities for the kids. Most of the children know that TLC sitters bring cool games to their house, so when you arrive on the job the kids are very excited to play with you.

To become a TLC temporary sitter, you must be 18 years or older and have a minimum of three childcare references and an insured vehicle.

How Social Media Can Damage Your Chances of Finding a Job

What you post on-line matters, and it is available to viewers potentially forever!  TLC for Kids wants to review some common mistakes that get you rejected for any job, not just a childcare job.

First, in today’s technologically advance world employers are able to “check you out” even before they hear your voice.  So sometimes a potential employer’s first impression of you could come from that picture of you doing a keg stand that you posted three years ago.  You know the old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”?  Well, it is true.  Whatever you do make all of your social media accounts TOTALLY private or better yet don’t post anything that wouldn’t make your grandmother proud.

Here are a few other things that could be potentially damaging besides your pictures.

1)      Complaining about your boss and/or your job is a big no-no.  This is unprofessional and shows a lack of loyalty.

2)      Using foul language is not only offensive to some but also shows a lack of maturity.

3)      Sexual oversharing is offensive to some and  also shows a lack of maturity.

4)      What and who you choose to “like” or “follow” tells a little secret about you.

5)      Making discriminatory or hateful comments related to race, gender, religion, politics, etc.

It is also beneficial to look at the email address, username and passwords that you use.  While hotmamma@aol.com might be cute to use with your friends, it is completely inappropriate to use in a professional capacity.  At some point, your application will be reviewed by someone who has access to your password.  Once again, keep it clean!

Lastly, your voicemail message is very important.  Make it short, sweet and professional.  No soap box speech or “Promiscuous Girl” lyrics on your outgoing voicemail message.

Keep these tips in mind when applying for a job, especially a childcare job with TLC for Kids.

Why I love being an after-school nanny

Although summer has just begun, families are already searching for after-school care for their children.

Some may think an after-school nanny position is just picking up the kids from school and taking them home for the evening. Yes, day-to-day tasks are part of the job, but being an after-school nanny is much more fulfilling than being a chauffeur.

As a former after-school nanny, I got to become an integral part of the family’s life. After I picked up the kids from school, we would come home and enjoy an after-school snack. While the kids snacked on fruit and crackers, I would get to hear about the most exciting parts of their day: the new books they read at school, what happened on the playground, and if anyone disrupted class (believe it or not, elementary school kids have a lot of gossip). After snack, we would start doing homework. During homework time, I got to strengthen my bond with the kids. They were looking to me for guidance and trusting that I was leading them in the right direction, and I got to learn what excited them about learning and what they struggled with (If you are going into elementary education, or any other field involving working with kids or teaching, this job is an excellent resume builder). On the days the kids had ballet practice, I would go to practice with them. Like homework time, this strengthened my relationship with my kids because I got to see them doing what they loved. If the kids didn’t have homework or practice, we would come from school and play, read, or make arts and crafts. Other than getting to bring out my inner kid and have fun, being an after-school nanny also included picking up the toys, and occasionally helping prepare dinner. This was the perfect job for me during my beginning days of college—it allowed me to go to my morning classes, and I was off work early enough to finish my homework (and have a social life).

Like I said, this is an especially great job for students, or anyone else who has free time in the afternoon. The hours needed for an after-school nanny are usually 3pm-6pm, or 2pm-6pm. Pay is typically between $12-$15/hour.

If you are an energetic, caring, and responsible individual looking for an after-school nanny position, you can apply today.
