Do not just unilaterally change daycare providers unless the court has expressly provided that you can do so. You will want to either get an agreement to change providers in writing from the other side or get a court order to change the daycare provider--if you are looking to make a permanent change of provider and not just find a fill-in for the two weeks. If you are just using a temporary daycare provider for the two weeks during your custodial time, you could just give written notice to the other parent of this fact and the contact information for the temporary provider during your custodial time. You will want to make sure you keep the written notice of the current daycare provider if you are filing a motion with the court and have other grounds for a permanent change of daycare provider. Of course, a permanent change of provider motion should include ALL facts that support the change, including distance, scope of care, availability, cost, etc. Hope that helps.
