Yikes,, DS is going off to kindergarten this year, and he will need one day, maybe 2 of aftercare,, I was able to adjust my schedule to pick him up the other days, his current and ONLY ever daycare provider is too far, and I am so nervous about fnding a new person, they have aftercare, but only for full time, and with all age groups,,not too keen on that,,Any ideas? I don't know any of the parents at the school he would be attending--and how much should I pay someone to watch him for about 4 hours a week,, they would need to pick him up as well,, The whole thing is making me a nervous WRECK--he has only had one daycare/preschool lady, and me and hubby to watch him,, HOW do you find someone good? Thanks!

Get to know your neighbors with kids. You could find a neighbor mom to watch him. You could find other neighbor moms in your situation and 3-4 families hire 1 care provider that you can pay really well since all families will be paying. When I was a single mom I did in home care for a rich family with and autistic preschooler and a girl in school and then cared for kids from 2 other neighbor families after school. I planned fun things for the kids to do. The kids all had a good time, the parents were all happy, and I got paid well. It was good for all.
