Did you know there is a free service to help you find childcare?
Last week I attended a Mom Corps event on how to position yourself better in the marketplace. There, I met Gerita Waithe with Child Care Resources. Here's what she told me about their services:
Child Care Resources offers two convenient, user-friendly services to help parents find quality child care that works for their family.
• Child Care eSearch – an online, searchable database of over 1,300 child care programs that parents can access by visiting www.childcareresourcesinc.org.
• Child Care Search - a free and confidential telephone referral line that parents can call for information about child care in the Charlotte region, steps for finding and selecting quality options, North Carolina’s Star Rated child care license, as well as parenting and child development tips.
