Childcare Substitute Teachers

    For those who self-op a childcare or early learning center on their campuses: how do you manage the issue of teacher call-offs? Do you maintain your own substitute list or have you successfully partnered with a local school system or other childcare centers to find subs?

    I checked in on our campus and got the following response:

    We do have 2 very part-time sub teachers on our sub-list.   Neither are available very often, though.  So, usually, it is the center director who ends up subbing. 

    In Madison, there is no collaboration for subs with the school district (because they don't have enough subs either) and the child care community is also desperately short-staffed here.
