Hello all, I will be starting my ADN in pima CC in Spring 2011. I have a son who is not in school yet. I'm planning on putting him in a day care center f/t when I start school. My husband will be mostly out of town and I have no family in Tucson either. I have this problem, what can I do when my son gets sick?? We all know kids get sick easily in a day care center setting. How can I find sick child care for my son if the day care center doesn't accept sick children. I can't stay home with him specially on clinical days and at the rate they get sick I can't miss that many classes either. So, does anyone know of a place that accept sick kids/ or a normal day care center with a sick kid section? Or an individual care giver who is willing to look after sick kids? How can I find someone? Usually how much they charge for a sick child? I tried Craigslist , but the response is not good.I know there are some sites on the internet / care agencies that provide sick child care but they need 24 hour notice. How do I know when is my kid going to get sick? And the rate is too high too. My husband is the only one working and we are on a budget. I need emegency back up child care. How did you ,nursing students / nurses find sick child care in Tucson?Please help, PM me if you know of a place or a person. Sorry this is long.Thank you in advance.
