Babysitting for ProAction??!
October 24, 2012 at 10:05 AM

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?

    I have no idea. This is definately not what I had guessed this post was about. 

    I live in Ny State also.. But I had never heard of that company. But I am assuming you live either in NYC or near it. 

    I live in Rural New York south of Buffalo Ny by about 2 hours. Near the Pa boarder.

    Headstart is a federally funded preschool, not a childcare subsidy paid to an individual

    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.

    If it is through federal funds, you may need to have certification.

    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..
