Are there any child care center directors or licensed day care providers that have trouble finding a substitute to come in for employee call outs, emergencies, or just to take a day off?

If you don't have this problem, please share how you handle these types of occurrences?

Well I think I understand your question, so I will try to answer it the best I can.

I am a Home DCP. When my child or myself is sick or I need a day off, it is the parents responsibiltly to find alternate care. Not me.

Keep in mind that if I need a day off/vacation, parents are verballytold/and told in writing and they have plenty of time to find someone else to care for their child.

I always tell parents before I start to care for their child that they need to have back up care in the event I cannot work.

I am the director of a daycare center. If one of my teachers needs off they need to put it in writing in advance. Then I take over the classroom for that day and I'll put an extra TA on to work at the front desk. If it's an emergency I pretty much do the same thing. I have applications for people that would like jobs but i have nothing available for the time being so I put them on as "subs" and have my employees call them if they need a day off. Hope that helps.
