Seeking After School Care for Kinder

My son will be ready for kinder this coming year and I don't know what to do about after school care. He's currently in preschool that offers a full day program through elementary but I'd like to look at other schools as well. I'm having a hard time finding an after school program in my area. The schools I've looked into only have after care for 1st grade and up. I work full time. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Otherwise, any suggestions on finding a babysitter in the Troy area...

What makes people think that their workout or lunch date is more important than anyone elses life? Here is what happened... a child in my son's school had a fever Wednesday night. No fever in the morning because they had been given tylenol. Then had to be picked up from school for a fever because she had the FLU! The mother is a SAHM but had to go workout because she was training for a...
