I recenlty moved from Mississauga to Oshawa, and my husband and myself were looking for child care for our two kids, called and visited several places but no look, then we had one of our neighbours recommend a place called 5 star training acamedy, in oshawa. We looked at there website and gave them a call we set up an appointment and went to see them, i was unsure at first, as my kids are the most important thing to me. It was nice as they are located in a nice building clean building, and the people who run it are nice and professional. So far we are very happy.

I am sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time to find child care for your 8 year old boy. I have been a home day care provider now for 11 years and our main problem is that we are only allowed 5 children (not including our own children) at any given time. So that means that if a child requires before and after school care they are really taking up a full time spot but we cannot charge a parent full time (okay some providers do) unless you have another families that only require care from 9-3 when the before and after school children are at school and they could share a spot. Then again though on school holidays and the summer providers would be over their allowed 5 children ratio. I can see the frustration on both sides and it breaks my heart that we cannot help more parents out. The really sad story is when you have had a child for years in your care and then they become school age do you tell them you can no longer care for them or take a huge pay cut which can hurt are own families.
Some suggestions for school agers is.....the Eastview boys and girls club (and they have a North Oshawa branch), or maybe one of your child's friends that has a parent pick them up your child could just hang out after school at their house and it would give their Mom some "fun" money, another option is asking your child's school....if there are other parents that are in the same situation as you maybe the school could offer a "After School Club" where the children could do up their homework, play sports in the gym, read books, maybe some simple not too messy crafts and the parents could take turns providing an after school snack for all the children and the money could go to something that the school needs; like a fundraiser and the teacher's could take turns supervising or bring in some high school students to earn their community hours. Just some thought for you. Good luck with your search and please try and understand why home providers tend not to take on school age children. We would love to help but we have to earn an income for our families as well.
Love: Mrs. Laurie

It is extremely difficult. I have an 8 year old boy who attends school and we live in North Oshawa and for the past 2 years since moving there I have found it difficult to find good after school care. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of offerings for unregisterd/ at home care. Most places offer care for preschoolers and kinder kids, with limited facilities for Grade 2 to 4 kids. Pick up options are also an issue. Most of the places I find are outside of the zone for bus and there is only one private service that I am aware of, but they don't service North Oshawa.
Today (August 25, 2008), I'm still looking for this school year
