I live in Seattle, and am looking for resources on how best to navigate the world of nanny share/day care co-ops
Following up on my last question,
my little guy and I ended up finding a day care for his part-time schedule! For various reasons (primarily location), this place isn't really a long term solution--probably until next summer at the latest.
My husband and I feel like we've just bought ourselves some time to look for other options. Specifically, we're expanding our search to include "daycare co-ops" (my mother-in-law is always talking about these) and nanny share programs. I've been searching for them online, but I think these places just don't have a great online presence/response rate.
Any advice for searching/making connections/establishing care at one of these sort of non-traditional child care arrangements? I have registered with a bunch of different organizations online, but haven't had much luck--I feel like this is a pounding-the-pavement kind of thing, but I have no idea where to start. I mean, I don't even think day co-ops exist anymore, but who knows! There are a lot of things about parenting that surprise me everyday.
I live in Seattle. Currently in the University District, will very likely be moving to Ravenna/Wedgewood soonish (I know I said in my last question that we'd be moving to the Central District, but that didn't work out).
