Childcare in the bush

Postby Bushteachers » Tue May 03, 2016 3:58 pm

I've seen quite a few people wanting to move and teach out in the bush with small families. I'd like to offer a word of caution. Make sure you have childcare lined up. Don't take a districts word that you won't have problem finding childcare. You will. Be prepared. Have a back up plan.

Many districts will give you a lead, but understand that your idea of quality childcare may not be the same.
Larger villages will offer more opportunities, but it isn't a guarantee.
