Looking for after school care for 7 year old that needs behavioural support and pick up from school

by Sarah • Calgary
I’m looking for part time care for my 7 year old son in the fall, and possibly some respite during the summer months. He will be in grade 2. He needs a pick up from school, and an outing (something active). It would be roughly 2:30-5:30 M-F and 11:30-2:30 Fridays. Transportation is required, as well as experience with, or openness to learn, strategies for supporting behavioural and emotional regulation needs. This includes co-regulation, strong boundaries, and knowledge of the regulation/escalation cycle. We live in the deep SE of Calgary. He would do especially well with someone that’s keen to be active, and comfortable with activities like swimming. Pay is negotiable, and will reflect experience and a fair rate. This is partially funded by FSCD.
