Nanny/childcare 1-2 days

So I'm starting a new job next week that will have me out of the house a day and a half more than I work now. My parents are willing to drive down from Dayton to watch the kids two days, but we don't think Mike's parents are willing to take on another day (don't get me started) so that leaves me with at least 1 day I need childcare. I was thinking maybe we could find a college student or something? I am really at a loss here. I have a friend having a baby in the fall, we talked about maybe nanny sharing (I'd do 2 days relieving my parents of one of their days, she's do 3 days) but I don't know how popular that is around here. Any ideas for me?

    Nanny sharing sounds like a great idea to me.  I have never heard of that, but it makes sense for sure.

    When we were looking, I signed up with sittercity.com and care.com and we had a lot of matches.

    You can also contact Xavier's career services.  There are a lot of college students looking for part time work like that.  GL!  And sorry the in-law help fell through.  I know you weren't expecting that!

    That stinks about your ILs, but at least it will cut lots of time off your daily routine/commute.

    What days/hours do you need? Sometimes, that makes a difference.

    I'm still unsure about that T. Probably Monday and maybe Tuesday or Wednesday? 8:30 ish to 5ish. How the heck much do you pay for this?

    Do you think your ILs would be willing to cover for a few weeks, until you find a long(er) term solution? If you'd like, I could ask DH if he has any seniors whom he would recommend as a PT nanny. That would get you through the summer. I know there are a number of teachers in the district who use some of them as their evening/weekend sitters. The ones I've met are very responsible - honors students, etc.

    Have you already contacted Xavier's career center to place a request/ad?

    Probably $10-15 an hour.  Then you have to think about taxes.  So it can be even more.  Would you ever consider taking them to a sitter?  Or a daycare?

    It's super hard to find something that will take them one or two days a week. We've checked several places.

    It all kind of depends. We pay $30/child/day; however, we only need coverage from 9:30am - 3pm.

    And the centers that will charge a LUDICROUS amount of money for PT care.

    Our center will take kids one or two days a week, depending on availability. The drawback to that is that it's more expensive, the less they are enrolled (the per day rate is cheaper if enrolled for five days per week vs just one or two days).

    I am not sure where you are located but my sitter takes kids on a part time basis.  I am in Delhi.
