Hi folks,

I don't know if paid childcare is a taboo subject here, but...

I'm currently staying home with my baby but will need to go back to work in September (other people's kids need me too!). I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion about part time child care in the NB-Fairhaven-Mattapoisett area, particularly gentle providers who won't mind that my daughter CDs.

Thanks!

Are you looking for a daycare center; nanny; or home childcare provider?

I know that there were a lot of women at the Unitarian church in New Bedford who did childcare (in their home or yours). You could put up a notice on their bulletin board.

Just wanted to say thanks, that's a great suggestion.

I'm probably not looking for in-home care - family daycare or a like-minded SAHM who wants to earn some extra money would be great. I want her to be around other kids, too.

Plus, I've been considering joining the UUs!

I used to enjoy going to the New Bedford UU church (I was staying with a friend in NB for a few months). It's a fun church. I bet you'd meet lots of SAHM's there!
I now live an hour away from there...otherwise, I'd join ya at the church for coffee hour.

Shamelessly bumping this to see if it gets any more replies! I promise to let it die a natural death now .

Did you try putting up an advertisement on the UU bulletin board? (or in their newsletter).

How about Craigslist?

I made up the advertisement, but haven't actually gotten to the church yet . I actually don't need childcare until September (mommy brain?), so I might try Craig's list closer to then. I'm going to the Fairhaven uu church tomorrow, so I'm going to try there too.

This organization is in New Bedford. You can call them (or maybe email) or go there in person. They can give you info on any licensed childcare provider (in home, centers, preschools, depending on your needs) in the Southcoast area. I don't think they deal with unlicensed providers though. But it's a good jumping off point.

Finding good child care is not easy.

I would set care up now with a back up. September is really not that far away. Plus taking time to get to know someone new and transition slowly is always good.

Just my thoughts take it or leave it.

That is a good point. Plus if your planning on finding a SAHM to care for your precious one you could always begin to forge the relationship now. BTW I also sent you a PM
