I was about to make the switch to a home daycare for my kids. The lady I've known for several years and it would have been just my 3 kids - she would even take/pick up M from school. This would have made my schedule possible and saved us money.
Well her husband just got transferred 4 hours away. :crying:
So now I have very few choices.
-go back where we were (at a center) that has lost my friend, the director, and several excellent teachers. This is the expensive option, but also very challenging for me since I will have to rely on a teacher friend at M's school to watch her before school everyday for an hour. It also will be extremely challenging for me to get to my school on time w/ the two stop drop offs.
-Try to find a home care provider for both K and little rose that can maybe get M to school (doubt it, since who would I trust), and maybe arrange for a pick up.
-Put M in the before/after school care (costs money and isn't run by teachers/staff) at her school, and the others in either home or center care - but still have the same problem since 6:30 is the earliest time for the school care and center care. I start at 7 am, which means I need to be there at 6:45-6:50.
I am sitting here on the verge of tears about this. I start school in less than 2 weeks and (like all of you) am super picky about who watches my kids.
