Looking for Suggestions re "Substitutes"
Hi all..I am new to this forum. I have a home daycare with 5 children, 2 of which are my own. I serve 3 other families.
I am wondering if anyone has suggestions as far as finding a substitute for when I have personal appointments (doc/daughter's school etc)? Right now I am taking the day off (or 1/2 day whatever) but I really want to find someone who can come in, sit in my place while I run to an appt for an hour or so. I would preferably schedule things during naptime (all kids nap simultaneously) so the sub would really just have to sit here in my spot. I am almost thinking like a college kid or something, idk.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to find a substitute? What do you do when you need to take personal time for appointments?
