I am a single mother of 3 boys in Pinellas Park all under the age of 7. I have a 6 1/2, 5 and a 1 year old. Every time my kids get sick I have to take off work because I don't know anyone in the area that will take sick kids and I pretty much just don't know anyone..

Is there any place that takes sick kids or is there some kind of nanny service that is reputable and will come to my home?

Any kind of information will help..

I know St. Joe's in Tampa use to offer sick day care at one time but it was not cheap. I think it was $50.00 a day, could be wrong about the price. I don't know if they still offer the service.

Good Luck..

Thank you for your response.. That actually isn't that bad when you think about it.. I would rather pay 50.00 than take the chance at losing my job.. to bad All Children's over here in st pete doesn't do something like that.
