Many parents face a serious challenge every summer: childcare.
School sessions come to a close but careers don’t just stop. Parents fill some of their kids’ time with summer camps and various recreational activities. Sometimes grandparents are available to watch the kids for a week or two or during a window of time during the day.
Some just can’t find enough options, however, so they need additional childcare. On the following pages you’ll learn about becoming a nanny or au pair – and even babysitting jobs. These jobs can be an excellent source of summer income and occasionally come with great perks including travel, room, and board. Care.com has thousands of childcare jobs across the United States.
