Choosing Your Care Provider

Choosing Your Care Provider

Choosing your day care provider is an important task, one that most parents take very seriously. Previously we have had to post ads in newspapers, ask friends if they could refer anyone or asked family members to fill in for us while we searched. Finding someone to watch our children on the spur of the moment was usually a nightmare.

Enter Online Child Care Services, now a qualified provider is just a click away. Not only can we find full time daycare, we can find part time, people to help us at a birthday party, while we run errands and other things. We can find someone to sit with our children while we run errands like grocery shopping or a trip to the dentist.

All we have to do is put in our zip code and up pops providers in our area. Their profile tells us where they live, how old they are, and how much experience they have, and what they expect for pay. Each member gives about a paragraph of information about himself or herself where they share a little about themselves. By reading the profile you will know if they have any specialized skills such as CPR or first aid. It also tells what ages they are comfortable working with, how many children they can care for at one time. The profile will tell you what hours they are available and if they are available for short notice care.

As a member you are able to have access to contact information, references and a background check. Some of the members already have a background check on file, if they do not you, as a member, can request they have one.
