This is my first pregnancy and I have no idea how to go about finding someone that is in their home. I really hate the idea of daycare and was hoping if I find someone in their home it would be a little better. I live in AZ, I thought maybe JM would have a breakdown of each state to talk to people from the same area, but I don't think they do. Any ideas how I find someone like this & if so typically are they more expensive than the daycare centers?? We don't have much to spend & I'm starting to freak out about the costs. I would like to keep my house!

Thanks for any input!!

I live in Canada so it may be a little different. But here there are a couple of ways to find in-home daycares.

First of all, in my city there is a Child Care Providers Network that parents can contact and if there are daycare providers registered in their part of town, they receive the phone number and email address of the providers and they can contact them either way.

Also, many of the home daycares here advertise on websites like craigslist. The ads will have basic information about the daycare and contact info.

Are there playgroups or other young families in your neighborhood? You could try talking to them. They would probably be able to provide you with information too.

Good luck!

You can check your local Craigslist (if you have one). That's where a lot of our local home daycare providers post ads for their daycares. You can email them and pick a few of your favorite ones and interview them and choose from there. Good luck!!

thanks for the input. Craigslist sounds a little scary. Couldn't just anyone put in an ad?

I know it sounds a little creepy, but you would obviously interview the people first. There are SAHMs that advertise on there who just want to make a little extra money, and there are also registered in home daycares, and nannies too. You can choose what you are comfortable with.
