I posted this on the working mothers board over a week ago, but have not had a response, so posting on a busier forum, sorry
Can anyone make a recommendation please on how I might find a nanny/babysitter for my daughter on an ad-hoc basis - but is before school care?
I tried a few agencies but it seems like a challenge for them to fill such a position (before school care, less than 3 hours, ad hoc).
I have to travel overseas for work occasionally, and I need my daughter to get to school on those days (my husband starts work too early to be able to do it). My daughter is 11 and the school is a 20 minute drive away.
So it would just be a week here, and a week there, and only for a couple of hours at at time.
What do others do? I see http://www.babysittersnow.com.au/ might be an option to start looking - has anyone else used that site?
Also, how do you claim CCB/CCR when it's not through an agency of any time? Or can't I?
Thanks for any suggestions!
(Note that I can't rely on friends or family to handle this type of care).

Before School Care - help

I hope you don't mind dot points- just trying to organise my thoughts and make it easy for you
- ccb/ ccr - unless the carer works for a registered scheme you won't be able to claim. And before school care could be very tricky to get someone in a scheme to help with.
- I had tried that website a few years ago when I had major trouble getting cc for my twins. I found that because it was "babysitting" they all asked for high rates- $30-$40 per hour. I gave up but you might have better luck.
- I would start putting the word out with families already at school. Do any parents of her friends not currently work and are sahp? That could be an option. As a sahm I would welcome a little bit of extra income just for looking after an extra child for a few hours in the mornings now and then.
