1. Stay in touch with your CCR&R referral specialist, ask them to keep thinking about what might work for you.
  2. Look in a different location; on your way to work, near work, or near a public transportation stop on your route to work, try a different route to work.
  3. Talk to friends, neighbors, people at your library, church or community center who may have faced the same problems. How did they solve them?
  4. Discuss your child care need with your employer and with co-workers. If many of you are having the same difficulties, your employer needs to know.
  5. Make a short-term plan for child care, but keep working with your local CCR&R until you find the kind of care you are looking for.
  6. Get on the waiting list at every program that would work for you. Sometimes openings come up unexpectedly.
