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.

    Contact North Edmonton Family Dayhomes. I’m a teacher and they told me I just have to pay for 5 days each month in the summer to hold his spot. I can use them or I can not, but I have to pay for them. But it’s still a huge reduction, I believe I pay $180-200 a month in the summers and it’s $760 a month when he’s there full time. And they accept subsidy so it would be even less for you.

    Try North Edmonton Dayhome Agency and ask if they have anyone who does this

  3. I suggest connecting with your coworkers and asking what they do/who they use.
