Hello, We just moved here from Texas, and are wondering where we might be able to find a teenager or college student who would be willing to stay with our kids in our home on snow days. (For $$, of course.) They are older, 7 and 11, but we still do not want them staying home alone yet. Willing to pick up and drop off caregiver if necessary. Does anyone have any ideas?

You could always try asking some of the parents in your neighborhood if they have a teenager or college student who would be able to do that. If its a high school student, chances are they would have off from school too, so it might work out for both families. Just an idea.

If you are in a lurch, you could try Neighborhood Nannies based out of Haddonfield. They charge a one-time fee of $35 to register. For two kids, the cost is something like $14 or $16 per hour. I forgot, but contacted them once when I needed emergency sitting.

Alternatively, go on care.com. Avoid at all costs craigslist because people tend to flake on that site. I've found care.com to be a good option if you have some time to look.

You might also try the many stay-at-home moms in the area. They will already be home with their own kids when schools are closed, and might like the dual benefit of making a few extra bucks AND having their own kids occupied with playmates. My sister lives in Marlton and is a SAHM, and she has lots of friends similarly situated.
