Find Child Care That's Right for Your Family
Win the fight against time with help from others. Whether you're a working mom, work-at-home mom or stay-at-home mom, the right child care gives you some much-needed time to get more accomplished.
Is Mom's Day Out Right for You?
There's no need to feel guilty about needing some time alone, even if all you plan on doing is clean the house. Mom's Day Out can give you a block of time to yourself that you can count on each week. Babies as young as six weeks are accepted at most programs for as little as one day a week up to every day of the week. Mom's Day Out is usually much less expensive than day care too.
Join a Babysitting Cooperative
Swap babysitting time with other parents to clear a few hours of child-chasing from your schedule. No money changes hands in a babysitting coop, making this a perfect option for many parents. Your kids get a play date with other children and you have a few hours to run errands, do household chores or enjoy some downtime.
