The first step is to outline what you'd like from a candidate before starting your childcare search. Think about how much you are willing to pay, the level of experience you wish them to have, if you want them to have any first-aid certifications, and if you need them to handle additional duties beyond taking care of your kids.
After this is completed, create an account on Care.com and answer a few questions to find childcare providers that match your needs. You can then either post a job that can be seen by our extensive pool of childcarers, or search for childcare providers on Care.com based on years of experience, hourly rate, reviews, distance from your area, etc. After you have selected your candidates, you can get in touch with them, schedule interviews and hire the childcare provider that best meets the needs of your family.
