Bouncing from One Caregiver to Another

Bouncing from One Caregiver to Another

My family lives in Craftsbury where finding childcare has become a struggle for many families. Those of us in small towns have no access to large childcare centers and our registered home daycares have been forced to shut down due to expensive and sometimes ridiculous regulations set by the state. Our kids are bouncing from one caregiver to another because we both need to work. Our children have spent more time with aging and exhausted great grandparents and this means more screen time. We hired a very expensive nanny for the summer but she is moving on to further her education in the fall. My husband and I have one month to find another childcare provider. If we can't, my husband will be forced to quit his job.
