Any childcare locations that are taking new children??

My wife and I have been striking out left and right looking for childcare options in or near Roxborough.
Every place we have contacted either has a waiting list that is years long, is asking for a non-refundable deposit and not guaranteeing enrollment, or just flat out telling us there is no chance.
Is there anywhere that is accepting new children?
In home, daycare center, etc?
Please let us know, as we really need to find somewhere sooner than later.

  • Have you tried the YMCA?

  • Megan,
    Thanks for the tip.
    We had a tour scheduled at the Y last Friday, which was canceled due to a staff illness.
    I've emailed them 2x since then to reschedule, to which I have had no reply.
    It seems that a lot of places just don't return calls or inquiries, as this is the 3rd place so far that has done this to us.
    The hunt continues though, we aren't giving up!
