With the snowfall and subsequent ice covering the roads earlier this week, I heard from dozens of desperate parents who were seeking last minute care as their nanny was unable to safely make it into work.
The forecast is calling for many more inches of snow (and below freezing temps) beginning tomorrow and lasting well into last week. I have a sinking feeling that schools will either be severely delayed or cancelled beginning next week.
I was discussing with the hubby and he had a novel idea….what if parents could find nannies or sitters that live within walking distance that might be able to offer last minute child care? Parents can get their child care need covered while care providers don’t have to risk driving on icy roads (or missing out on income if they don’t have guaranteed hours)!
