After Hours Event Connects Moms and Sitters

On Thursday, May 29th G.Willikers! Toy Shop hosted an evening with Moms and Sitters Connect LLC, a local business that tries to unite moms in search of quality child care and young women who have the experience to provide it. The woman behind this idea is Sarah Wollheim, a Rollinsford resident who came across the concept after experiencing her own ups and downs with finding sitters for her family.

The event was very well attended (actually the interest level exceeded the store’s capacity to comfortably host this type of gathering) with 15 moms and 15 care givers from UNH getting to know one another with both formal introductions and lots of one on one mingling. An informational binder was given to each mom with the bios and work experience of each sitter included with lots of room for note taking.

Everybody involved seemed to really like this concept. Moms appreciated having such an impressive group of young women to connect with in a short amount of time, a.k.a. Time Management. The sitters felt that G.Willikers! provided a safe and comfortable environment to showcase their experience and get to know prospective employers.

It was like a cross between a job fair and speed dating. Check out photos of the event in our photo gallery.

As with all “After Hours” events at G.Willikers! Toy Shop, guests were offered a storewide discount on purchases made that evening. To book your own “G.Willikers! After Hours” event, call Jody or Bob at (603) 436-7746.
