5 Steps to Choosing theRight Childcare
There is nothing more important to a parent then their children. Finding the right caregiver is a quest that at times seems insurmountable.
Who do you really want to let teach and raise your children when you simply cannot be there? The answer is someone you can welcome into your home as a family friend, and someone that you know will treat your children as if they are their own while still maintaining your rules and teachings.
Dont trust the internet! There are great people out there, but use a service like BrightStar to help as not only do we do a lot of the work for you, we also have a very detailed screening process that includes: a criminal background check, drug screening, and current CPR certification.

However, make sure you customize it to your family and particularly to your children. Do an interview, some of the most basic questions you should ask can be found here on ourResourcespage.Step 2
Let your kids do an interview! They can and should be the ultimate decision factor- and this step can tell you a lot about their developing relationship by how they react to each other, and how they will get along in the future. If your children shy away, or keep distant then this is not the person for your child. The child should feel as comfortable with them as they are with a close family friend. Step 3
Once you have found someone both you and your Kidslike, then ask for references and make sure to contact at least two of them. Even if you dont have time to contact every one, it will allow you some glimpse into their background and history with children. Step 4
Plan a day in which you and the sitter can spend a few This is ideal because the sitter needs to know a bit about your families habits and how you deal with issues as they arise. Plus you can see how they interact even if you are just in the house while the spend time with the children. Step 5hours together with the children.
