So, DD2(Fi) starts lower el at a New Montessori School in August, which has preschool thru age 14. We did not apply to this school for Casa as they had no All Day Community type program, not even a drop in program. So, they have NO afterschool programming, and both myself and DH work full time outside the home, far away from New School.<br><br>
Options I have considered:<br>
1. Try to convince New School to develop an afterschool program<br>
2. Try to convince Old School to let Fi participate in All Day Community from 3:15 to 6 pm<br>
3. Try to convince Community Recreation Center to develop afterschool program<br>
4. Find high school or college student who drives to pick up Fi and do whatever until 6pm; estimated cost $90 per week at $7 per hour.<br><br>
What would you do? Any alternative suggestions or ideas? I have like 6 weeks to come up with something. Any ideas greatly appreciated, as long as no suggestions to quit my job, not feasible or doable.

daycare homes and childcare centers usually have afterschool slots.

Do you know any other fams at this school? Maybe you can ask the office manager or director of new school if there is a mom who does after school daycare...? That would love to include your DC? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br>
Or maybe a friend from old school would be willing to pick up and care for your dc?<br>
Good Luck!

lol Most schools I've ever been involved with, lots, have soooo much to do they are there preparing and keeping up w/mail and phone msgs at least half time thru the summer. Think good thoughts and at least leave a msg if you don't get someone directly so they know you're looking <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
