There is a childcare facility in Sidari called (I think) Giggles. A soft play area with snack bar etc, based on similar lines to the UK ones. They offer supervised play and childcare, with at least one qualified nursery nurse, as well as parents accompanying their children.
Earlier in the summer the supervised facility was 3 euros per hour (including a drink) or 12 euros a day including lunch and drinks. They were open from around 8am to 10pm in order to help working mums. Whether they are open such long hours year round I don't know.
There are various day nurseries, both state run and private, but these tend to have waiting lists. The state run ones are free, and whilst I don't know about Sidari specifically, they tend to be open during school hours.
Hope this helps a bit.

Giggles has closed down,it will be a fruit&veg shop! There are no private nurseries in Sidari,I'm sorry to say!There is a nursery in Peroulades,but I doubt they'd take your child as there's a waiting list.

You may find that most jobs that you are likely to be offered will require you to work very long hours, possibly even 7 days a week.
I have not yet come across a nursery that will cover those hours. A similar situation will apply to your friend and her child as I would imagine your best hope of work will be the tourist industry and that clashes badly with the long school summer holidays. Could one of you work and then pay the other for childcare?
It would be easier in winter months but I am not sure there will be much work available around Sidari then. If you do find work, make sure you have enough money in reserve for the first winter as I don't think you will be entitled to any benefits.
