You have certainly sought out & found the best source for this Very Important need. Angie's List lives up to its reputation when it comes to good solid answers from real parents and real consumers. As a mother of five myself this is especially a hot topic as they say. My best advice is to do your HOMEWORK extensively. I own my own Nanny business and from 30 yrs. experience leave no grain of sand unturned. Most would say look under every stone or leave no stone unturned when looking for care of any loved one. I go further down to investigating under grains of sand. I must be this thorough as now you must be. First thing is interview anyone recommended to you from whom you already know and trust. Interview these potential nannies/babysitters, at a local coffee shop, not in your home. Not till you feel comfortable. Remember you really do not know anything about the people you’re leaving your children with. Check out everything you can look n line regarding reviews, however; I must warn you scorned Moms can leave the most nasty of reviews for no other reason than being mad at a center. It could be for all sorts of reasons other than the great care being offered. If in further doubt as I would I would park my car in lot of center after work when it’s pick up time and ask the parents who have their children there themselves. How better then to get a read on the care provided. Get a list of who works there full time & part time and reach them thoroughly. Then once you decide on one place in a particular, may I remind you to never assume anything. Drop in, a lot and not just at first everyone knows parents do that but every blue moon for your own peace of mind. I hope these tips serve you well and I really hope you get the best choice for the best care for your children.
