COMMUNITY BABYSITTER REGISTRY

The Woodcroft Community League is offering a baby/child sitting registry. A member of our community, Kara, will coordinate baby/child sitters with interested community members in need of a sitter. The coordinator will simply match the parent needing a sitter with an available sitter.

The coordinator will not make the arrangements nor intervene in any issues that may arise between the sitter and the parent.

 

In need of a baby/child sitter?

Please call at least 48 hrs in advance of the date and time you need a sitter. We can deal with shorter notice but it decreases your chances of getting a sitter. You will need to provide:

• Your name & contact number

• Number & age of children

• Date, start & end time

 

Interested in becoming a neighborhood baby/child sitter?

Your will need to provide Kara with the following:

• Your name

• Your parent’s name and their contact number (other parents will  contact your parent to discuss the arrangements)

• Days/evenings of the week that you are available to be a sitter

• Ages of children you are willing to be a sitter for

 

Please contact Kara at 780-452-3619 to request a sitter or to be put on the sitter list.

MEDIATION & RESTORATIVE JUSTICE CENTRE

 

About MRJC

The Mediation & Restorative Justice Centre (MRJC) is a not-for-profit organization devoted to building safer and more peaceful communities. We support our community by providing an array of programs and services based on restorative justice and community mediation principles and practices to effectively resolve conflict.

Real freedom is the ability to pause between a stimulus and a response and in that pause, choose.
- Rolo May

When dialogue escalates into argument and those arguments seem hopeless, there is a way to get through. Whether you need to resolve a dispute, improve your organization’s effectiveness, or enhance your own communications skills, MRJC's Mediation Services can help you.
    
Restorative Justice works on the premise that the effects of crime are best addressed by involving the offender, the victim and the community to help repair the damage caused by the crime. The Mediation & Restorative Justice Centre offers programs that help address issues specific to the offender, the victim, and the community at large.
