Expecting a little one? Returning to work? Whatever the reason, if you’re looking for full- or part-time child care, we have the information you can rely on.

Starting Your Search

You may have friends or co-workers who can offer recommendations. If not, then our article, Tips for Conducting Child Care Research will help you in the search process.

Some points to consider:

  1. The type of care would you like for your child
  2. The experience and special training the caregiver may need – for instance, if your child has special needs
  3. The time commitment you’re looking for: full- or part-time, weekends, overnight, live-in
  4. The additional service you need – for instance, transportation to/from care, school, after-school activities
  5. The budget you have (Read 7 Sources for Affordable Child Care for some options.)
  6. The timeframe – how quickly you need child care: tomorrow or in six months
