PLEASE HELP!! ChildCare Needed starting in March
I have been searching and searching for a safe, loving, and warm environment for my children to go for childcare on Mondays, Thursdays and occasional Fridays from 8am to 5:30pm. I have had SEVERAL interviews with providers and can't seem to find any with homes that are suitable for small children. My son is 2 yrs and my daughter is 6 mnths. Our current daycare provider only watches children till age 2 and my son just turned 2 last weekend. We would really like to keep them together. We had our son all set to start pre-school at a church center but about a month ago I had to take an 18% paycut at work in order to keep my job. We have been making alot of layoffs. My husband is a self-employed contractor and has been slowing down himself. We now can't afford to put our son in a daycare center and need to find another in-home provider or nanny with reasonable rates.
I've tried Craigslist and have gotten nowhere. Most on the women advertising there are inexperienced and are not equipped to care for children.
