Hi, this is my first post here. I am a middle school FACS teacher but my background is in early childhood. I worked day care for over 10 years while I went to college and such.
I am looking for day care now for my 9 month old daughter and it is so hard because I KNOW the good places, I know what to look for, I know what I want her to have and what is best and I can't afford those places on a teacher salary!
Now I am down to church day cares and in home babysitters and it just isn't the quality I want for her. I used to work at the best places in town and these other places don't do any of the stuff I want her to do like sign language, etc.
It is a mixed blessing knowing so much about day care because it is making it hard to accept anywhere. Her Grandma's have been watching her up until now and one is ill and the other is going on a month vacation so we need something until June. This is hard!
Any tips or advice?
