I would try to find a sitter/nanny rather than a daycare.
I also recommend that you look into going back to school (you can do online school) and I am assuming since you have to work and are a single mom you will qualify as low income which will qualify you for all sorts of loans and grants.
In my case, not only was I able to get all my school paid for by a Pell grant (one you do not have to pay back). I took out an additional loan that tallied 1k a month. This I do have to pay back, but I was able to stay home so to me that is worth it. Once you are done with school you can defer your payments for a year at a time, which means you don't pay anthing at that time either.
I got my medical transcription certificate in 9 months, and am actually graduating next week. I only had a GED. If I can do it, anyone can.
Good luck! And feel free to message me if you would like help finding a reliable school.
