Needing a dayhome
Please read the whole post before responding as I’m looking for specifics…
First off, it needs to be licensed and accept subsidy. Accredited would be a big bonus. North side/north west is best.
I am looking for a dayhome that would cater to people who work in schools. I have summers off so if you close down for the summer that would be great. I worry about going back to work after my mat leave because my child will absolutely not be in daycare if I am not at work which means during spring break, summer and Christmas break. However, most daycares don’t want to fill the spot for the summer so I have to pay both months to keep the spot for September.
Yes. I understand that a daycare or dayhome still needs to run even if my child is not there, but I am already at half my wages for the summers so paying full fee for a childcare spot isn’t really an option so I am looking for a dayhome that closes down for the summer OR would take a very reduced rate for the summer to hold my child’s spot.
I do plan to contact child care subsidy to ask if there are options for parents in this boat, but I’m wondering if you folks know of anyone who offers this. I know there are private dayhomes offering these sort of things but like I said, I will be needing somewhere that accepts subsidy.
