A number of Las Vegas valley parents are scrambling to find child care after their daycare at the MGM cut back its 24-hour service.
Bright Horizons Child Care Center is the Las Vegas Strip's only 24-hour child care provider and mothers like Marcella Mellette rely on their service.
"Almost every night," Mellette said. "I pick the kids up around 2 a.m. because my job doesn't normally end until 2 a.m."
Last Thursday, Bright Horizons sent home a letter with parents saying they would be closing at 12:30 a.m. -- essentially cutting overnight child care.
"I left the daycare crying because I don't have the options I don't have the help and my kids are my number one," Mellette said.
A representative with Bright Horizons told 13 Action News there isn't a demand for overnight care and only an average of 10 kids use the service a night.
The daycare is also requesting parents give staff a four-hour notice before needing additional service along with paying an additional $25 fee.
"I'm going to get hit with so many fees at daycare that it won't be feasible for me to stay and work overtime," Mellette said.
Mellette, who is a bartender inside Treasure Island hotel-casino, will now have three weeks to find someone to watch her children -- a difficult task for a single mother with two children and no family in Las Vegas.
"This is the industry we picked but this is supposed to be a daycare for this industry," Mellette said.
