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!

We are in need of affordable childcare!

Hello,
My wife and I have been living in the area since April of '17, and have really enjoyed it so far.
We're currently in need of childcare for our 2 year old daughter, and are hoping that someone on here can offer some suggestions.
The barriers we keep finding are that most places are booked for the next year of two.

Hello,
My wife and I have been living in the area since April of '17, and have really enjoyed it so far.
We're currently in need of childcare for our 2 year old daughter, and are hoping that someone on here can offer some suggestions.
The barriers we keep finding are that most places are booked for the next year of two.
Most places are out of our budget. The last daycare was charging us $720 a month for 3 full days a week.
We're hoping to keep it around that amount, if somehow possible.
Some things we are open to are nanny shares, in-home childcare, or our child going to someones house (references and background checks, of course).
If you can help out, know someone who can, or a childcare center in the area, please let us know.
Happy New Year!
