Note:  this is an excellent way to earn extra money and can lead to more work; this should not be considered a full time job i.e. guaranteed income; is purely dependant on your willingness to work. There are a lot of requests that come in that you can choose to accept or reject.  They requests will come in the form of text messages / email (which you have been subscribed to, even before completing the process).  If you prefer not to receive messages via email or text and would prefer to follow this blog or follow Sunshine’s twitter feed @ResortChildcare, you can unsubscribe any time. Sometimes texts and emails can be annoying for those who have limited availability.


Important to follow Job Postings on Facebook and Twitter if you do not like to receive direct texts or emails (they are not public accounts; both feeds require approval to join)
