Hey everyone! I'm currently in a predicament. I'm looking for good, reliable child care that would be available between 2pm and 10pm. My fiancee works second shift and I will be in the beginning of November. We have child care now through a daycare that told us before enrolling our son that they offer second shift but they've proven to be unreliable. In the last couple of weeks I've had to do a lot of shift switching (I currently work retail) to accommodate them! They are saying that they can only offer second shift to me on the days that another parent, whose child care is paid through the state, wants care. Needless to say this is not something I can be bothered with come November when I start my new job. We've been doing our research and have come across several facilities that "say" they offer second shift (via website, etc) but upon talking with the directors it seems that a second shift has not been implemented and that they would have to "work" with us. We do not want to have to go through "working" with somebody in that way again as it's very stressful not knowing if you'll have definite child care available in the coming week. I would love to find a place that already has a well structured second shift program that's close to home (I live uptown off of Graham) but location really isn't a huge deal because I'll be working in the university area and my fiancee works off of Carowinds Blvd so nothing will be too far away I suppose. If anybody knows anything please post away, thanks!
