Our Greatest Asset

When searching for new daycare providers please use a checklist to make sure that all your questions are answered. Without a list things get forgotten! has several good list., great questions regarding the provider, services, safety, in case of emergency plans, fire safety, home safety, cleanliness, unauthorized daytime visitors, back ground checks, social media checks how much time are they spending on line during work hours, what type of things are they posting, reference checks, who visits during work hours that your children might be exposed to, do they smoke, is there alcohol present, do they have insurance so if something happens you and yours are protected, late pickup arrangements, provider sickness, child sickness, storms, pets, provider background check, spousal background check, are there firearms in the house do they have trigger locks are they secure, The list goes on and on.

Some of these areas may seem unwarranted, however do you want to entrust your most precious asset with someone you don't really know. Someone who really is not approved or certified by the state, county, town or village to conduct this service.

In today's world you just can't take people at their word. You just never know.

Thank you for this post.

You never know who simply offers to watch children.

And never believe someone is honest and true even if they say they have watched children for twenty plus years.

Just use caution, ask around, even topix might be a good way to get people's opinions.
