I live in a rural area so I don’t think my cost is in the same stratosphere as yours. We do not pay anything if our kids don’t go to the babysitter. There is no paid time off and I have never been contacted by my sitter about picking up my kids due to illness. I would look elsewhere if I were you based on the time off and sending kids home all the time. You need to know you are covered so you can do your job! Good luck, I feel like finding all around good childcare is such a stress when you are a working mom
