We moved to Canberra two months ago for my husbands job. I'm sure none of you will be surprised, but I can't find daycare! I quit my job to move here and need to start working again, but can't until I can find suitable care for my little ones.
They are almost two and almost three years old, which makes it trickier trying to get two spots!
Does ANYONE know of ANYONE who does family daycare who might have spots available. Or does anyone know of a nanny or carer looking for two to three days work per week?
I am absolutely desperate, I have called everyone under the sun, with no success. Please, if anyone has any ideas, I would really appreciate your help.

It seems to be in Canberra, she who calls the most gets a place, regardless of where you are on the list. So keep calling the daycare centres you like, every week and hopefully some days will come up.
Have you tried occasional care? There is an occasional care centre at Charnwood shops that you may be able to use also.

Thanks Davally, I will have to become that "she"!
It's almost funny, the day cares reactions when I ring! Almost.
I'll check out Charnwood as well. Appreciate your response.

Thanks Tormy! 18 months !!! Wow. I've had a look at all classified but the available people all seem to be in Tuggeranong or thereabouts. I'll keep checking though.
