Before/After School Care Map for Parents
Instructions for Parents:
There are two ways for you to use our Before/After School Care Maps:
Option 1: Post your before/after school care need by adding a marker to the below map. Care providers who are interested in fulfilling your need can find you on the map and contact you.
Option 2: Browse the map for care providers looking to fulfill before/after school care needs near you. Click here to access the map of care providers offering before/after school care.
If you would like to post your need by adding a marker to the below map, please follow these instructions. The marker form is at the end of these instructions for members with an active Family/Parent subscription.
Step #1: Marker Name
Type in your first name here. We do not recommend typing in your full name as this map will be made available to the general public. You could also add your first name and first initial of your last name.
Step #2: Address
Ignore the address input box and instead click the button that says “Add by Click”. After clicking this button, zoom in on the map to a location down the street, around the corner, or a few blocks away from your residence and click to drop a pin. Again, as this map is available to the public, we do not recommend using your actual address.
Step #3: Marker Description
Add any relevant information here about when you need before/after school care (i.e. I need care from 7am to 8am every Monday for school drop off), what experience level you are looking for in a provider, your pay rate or range (i.e. $23 to $25/hr), how many children you need care for, details of what you need help with (i.e. pick up from school, make a snack, and help with homework) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY a way for care providers to get a hold of you (phone, email, Facebook name, Twitter handle, Instagram account, etc). Again, this map is public so you might want to create a throw away email account and use that email here.
Step #4: Choose Icon
Choose your favorite icon to display your location on the map. I recommend one of the solid color icons as those are easier to see on the map.
Step #5: Click “Save Marker”
That’s it! You are all set. You will notice that the map will automatically refresh and display your icon and provided information on the map. If you would like to delete your marker, just look for the Delete Marker button at the bottom of the form.
Instructions for Care Providers:
If you would like to find a family in your neighborhood who has a before or after school care need, simply move the map and zoom in on your neighborhood. Click on any of the pins located near your residence to see if a family has a need that you can fulfill.
Contact them, make sure they are the right fit and get that child care need handled! You might also want to check out our Member Feedback page and Testimonials page to see if other care providers that have worked with them have left feedback.
