I was also hoping to fill the empty spaces; out of a potential for five charges in addition to my own two, two are filled with full-time children and one of those has given their notice.
I have another full-time to start at the end of May and then I have two more starting full-time in September.
I really need to fill the spaces now and am getting extremely anxious.
I suppose that with the lay-offs people are staying home with their children. I also hear that a lot of people who have been laid off are starting up their own home childcare programs.
