The phone calls were pretty basic at first. Then when I couldn't give the age of my child, the sex of my child, or the date our child would be needing to start day care I was pretty much given the brush off and told to, "please give us a call when you have more information."
Okay, after a while being given the brush off is a little rough, but I can understand. I worked in day cares all through college. I understand they work in the here and now. I understand I don't have a "delivery date" or any of the normal information that a future mom may have, but I do have hopes that this school year I will have a child that may need your services. Please have a little time for me.
After getting some good advice from a good friend about another possibility I called our local school district. That is where the 'shiitake hit the fan'. After making me feel like I didn't know what I was talking about this woman said, "All day cares are the same. You drop your kid off, they play, they eat, they get sick, they go home." What the HELL!?!?!?!
This is going to be a long, LONG search. I am going to a meeting at the school district where I work later in the week. Since they seem to be moronic at our local school district, I'll go where I know some people who may still give me the brush off, but hopefully they'll be kinder about it.
Heavens this SUCKS!
