    'look' or 'looking'?

    I wonder??? These sentences are correct?
    1. I would like to apply for job to look after your children in morning.
    2. I would like to apply for job as looking after your children...
    Thanks you for your help.

    You are correct Fazzu. To lok after/looking after are both good. You do not need the commas, and "in/during the morning" is better than "at morning times". We use at as a preposition for a specific time - e.g. at 10am/at lunchtime,etc.
