Hi. I live in New York state and I'm going to be starting to babysit my neighbors kids, one is 3 or 4 and will be full time and the other is 8 and will be after school. They have the child care thing through ProAction to help them with childcare costs and I was wondering if anyone else has done this and what their experience was. Is it like a regular paying job, do they pay minimum wage or do they have special payment ect?
My coworker would watch her friends kids and get paid through the state. I'm not sure if there's a name or a company. All I remember her saying was that she watched her friend's 2 or 3 kids during the day, got paid through the state, and had to fill out a taxform come tax season. I live in PA, so I don't know if it would be different or not.
1 It appears that your confusing the parent company's of Either Accord for allegany county or Community action for Catteraugus county.. Not sure what other counties call it.. But I am pretty sure that Headstart doesn't pay for daycare. Why? My BFF is a site manager for Headstart. I asked. She said She has never heard of any such program. But it may still be a program of the parent companies which isn't afiliated with headstart..kwim!
2 Which county are you in.. or what town. I live in Rushford..
No I live near PA too, the southern tier, and proaction is headstart. Its like government asstance for caregivers
