We are expecting our first baby the very end of Nov My husband and I have a very unique situation and I'm not sure what the best childcare option is going to be for us. I work ~3 days a week, 8:00-2ish... I can be flexible on when I leave (and sometimes arrive) but on Tues & Thurs I must be at work by 8:00. My husband is a pilot and his schedule changes monthly. He is home 3 full days a week. Sometimes those days are during the week and sometimes (usually not) they are over the weekend.

Basically, I need childcare only two days a week. All of the "good" places will only take full time infants (and I totally understand that reasoning.) So I need just part time, two days a week child care. I'm thinking my best bet is something home based. WDYT? My other option would be to have a nanny for 2 days a week... fwiw, I will be able to take le bebe to work when she's itty bitty...

Is there another option I am not thinking of? Does anyone have any recs? Feel free to DM me...

I would like someplace close to home or on my way to work. I work near downtown and either take Huebner to I10 or can take Bitters to 281.

Does your HOA have a newsletter you could ask? My parent's HOA newsletter has this little section where people can ask questions like "I'm looking for a great in-home daycare close by that will accept a part-time child. Please call XXX if you have any suggestions."

Just an idea!

Have you searched DFPS - Search Texas Child Care

That's how I found both our providers, both in home. The daycare is waaay on the southside so it won't help you, but we've been very lucky. It's a great situation. The downside to in-home is you need a backup. It hasn't happened often with our current provider, but was an issue with our first provider who had her own small children at home and all sorts of things to do. Our current provider runs it more as a business - i.e. more professional.

Anyway, the website was useful in at least locating options, then we made a bunch of calls and visits.
