  • Prior knowledge preferred or willingness to learn how to use various digital communication solutions like Slack, Google shared calendars, and Gmail. We use these platforms as our main source of communication and scheduling, this is a firm requirement. 
  •  Fluency in English – both spoken and written.
  • Willingness to undergo a background and reference check ( to be conducted after an in-person interview).
If you meet all of the above criteria, we are looking forward to hearing from you! Follow the prompts to the next page to start the application. All of the listed questions need to be answered in order to successfully apply to join our team at Project Date Night. Please take this questionnaire seriously as it will have a big impact on our decision to hire you or not. We recommend that you allow a minimum of 30 minutes to go through all the questions. This way you can be as thorough as possible. And goes without saying - use proper grammar and punctuation.
If your application is accepted, you will receive a follow-up correspondence and steps to schedule the virtual interview. 

Important. Project Date Night is not a recruitment and/or placement agency - therefore our fees’ schedule works differently than in agencies of this kind. Our main income and budget that allows us to run this business, comes from the memberships paid by our families and a 10% fee from each job/booking paid by our team members. If you are not ok with transferring 10% of your earnings to us - please do not apply to join our team as we would not be a good match for you. If you would like to learn more about how we work and if we are a good match for you - please message us before you apply. 

 

JOIN THE TEAM

 
 

We will run the background check upon acceptance of your application. The cost is $40.

We are sorry but you cannot apply without agreeing to a background check. 

COVID VACCINATION 


As the COVID vaccine is now readily available to everyone, we do ask our current and potential team members of Project Date Night to get vaccinated s soon as possible. Our families ask for and prefer to work with vaccinated caregivers, as it provides more safety. Most of the parents we work with are vaccinated as well - we do relay this information to our team members. Please let us know below if you are vaccinated. If you are not vaccinated and cannot get a COVID vaccine for medical reasons, let us know below. If you are not planning to get vaccinated due to your beliefs or are not comfortable sharing vaccination information with us - we are sorry but we will not be able to work with you.
 
Thank you for considering applying with us. Looks like your journey with us ends here.  

Personal Information

 
 

If you don't feel comfortable giving us your full address, we only need an approximation so we know how you would need to travel to our families.

What schools and courses so far have you attended?

Please write a short bio that you would like to be displayed on our website ( if we accept your application). We will only post it alongside your pic, only if you are comfortable with that. As a reference take a look at bios of our current members on our "Meet The Team" page.

Your Childcare Experience

This is the longest part of our application form - please take your time to answer each question thoroughly. In this section, we will ask you questions about your experience working as a childcare provider as well as your work ethics, your childcare ideas and preferences, and your own lifestyle.

 
 

In what capacity have you worked with children?


 

What children's age groups do you have experience with?

Tell us about your childcare style

 
 

Are you a wizard in potty training, sleep training, or maybe feeding picky eaters?

Can you plan play-dates? Are you always on the go, out and about with your little charges or prefer the indoors?

What do you do when a child refuses to go to sleep? What do you think is the best way to handle tantrums?

Personal Preferences

 
 

Would you consider yourself computer/tech savvy? We use several apps for communication and email updates so you must be able to access and utilize these with ease.

Do you have any allergies to cats, dogs or other pets? Are you uncomfortable around or scared of any particular pets?

Tell us about your hobbies, biggest life loves and your dislikes. Are you an avid runner, book reader or an amazing baker?

What makes you stand out and why? Think outside the box. Please stay away from sentences similar to " I love children!" etc. We already assume you do as that is a mandatory trait in order to this job well.
