Hello - I am from Michigan and we have a condo on Anna Maria Island and we come down over Spring Break and Thanksgiving and the week after Thanksgiving every year. Any chance there might be an early to mid teen interested in watching / playing with my kids (I will still be at the condo) over the time we are there in a couple weeks? Primarily it's for my 6 year old Levi. The dates I'm looking for are over Friday Nov 23 - Nov. 30 and it'd be 3-4 hours every couple days. We have been using a sitter on the Island over the past several years, but now she has a job. I can send a picture of our family if you'd like. I pay $7 - $8 / hr depending on the age and experience of the sitter. If you can pass this along to anyone else / homeschool lists in Bradenton or closer, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks so much.

You can try www.care.com, www.sittercity.com, or the Florida Child Care Search site - Child Care Provider Search - SansWrite Public Web Portal. My stepdaughter has gotten more than one sitter from the Florida site. Babysitters are hard to find.

In our area, the YMCA does a baby sitter course for young teens to learn how to care for a baby/young child
You might call the local YMCA and see if it offers such classes and might have list of possible sitters...

But I am glad to see those other links--will forward to my daughter in case they need sitter and can't find a friend
