How to find Child Care?
This is the time to activate your social network. Reach out to your employer to see what benefits they have. One option is to coordinate with coworkers to stagger time off and trade child care. In-home daycares may be willing to assist, or also try NextDoor to see what co-ops are available in the community. With older kids out of school, there may be some who are available for babysitting. For advice on if it’s ok for your children to be home alone, this article has a series of questions to ask yourself.
