Default Worth it to Hire an Assistant?

Hi! I've been licensed only 4 months, and am filling up fast. I have a couple of families interested in full time care, but would have to kick out some part timers to make room for them with my current capacity. I hate to do that, and my only other option is to hire an assistant and apply for a higher capacity. With all the taxes and insurance, is it worth it? Thanks for any advice.

It depends on how much you need to pay your assistant.

What I would do in your shoes, is offer the part timers the ability to move up to full time care. If they choose not to, then let them know you are planning on taking on more full timers and that will mean limited availability to them.
