Yeh I have a 7 seater so fitting someone would be no hassle but it's just finding someone to come. I have an appointment the same day hubby comes home but because he won't be here in time, I was doing that one alone too but I managed to get a friend to come with me. But she lives 3 hours away, and same distance as I am from town, so that's a 7 hour each way trip. She is also working those other days.
Everyone here in town is either working, looking after their own kids or going to be away as its the first day of school holidays and the last Friday at the end of school holidays.

Babysitting by a local high school student? Ask at local day cares if there's someone who does babysitting and isn't rostered on?

Look for Babysitter who isn't a high school student. When I was looking, a lot of Stay at home moms want to do it for cash. I used one full time for a week. More expensive but I see that $ isn't a problem for you. Look at family daycare, they might have spots for the day but having 3 kids might be difficult. They can only care for 8 kids at once.it depends on the family daycare policy).

Could there be any uni students around you? For most it will be between semesters so they might be looking for extra cash - bonus would be someone studying an education or health care related course.

Do you need to be in the therapy appointment with your 4 year old? My 4 year old stays in the room on his own - I understand things may be different for your little man however if you are not needed in the room you could look after your other 3 kids close by..
