Maternity leave substitute??
I am due for my 2nd child in September 12. I am a NYS registered daycare provider, I plan to take 2 months off but I know with my other son I had to take 12 months off because he just wasn't ready to share me. In NY are you allowed to hire someone to come in to be a "helper" if you are always on site? Or do you always have to still be in the room and have visual contact? I know you cannot hire someone as a sub on a regular basis but what about a "helper" someone while you are there and then on occasion (for dr's appts and other things) be left alone with the children. I would like to hire someone for a year so that I could give my 2nd child as much attention as my first but I also do not want to lose my full daycare and have to start all over again.... Has anyone ever done this or know the regulations regarding it???

Maybe something here in the regulations:
