There a few options for the teacher:
- Sometimes it can become a second job during the summer-- daycares may need more help because more children will be in need of daycare services when school is not in.
- Other times, the daycare may want to operate during similar months to public schools and prefer to serve teachers with that same schedule.
- It isn't uncommon for secondary institutions to offer daycare services. This allows the teenage students to learn about child development and the different teaching professions.
- The teacher may also contract for the 9 month period. Chances are, an education professional is going to be understanding (and thus easier) client to serve. A daycare does have an interest in keeping easy to serve clients even if the schedule isn't year round.
