Best Way to Find Childcare
This post sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students; however, thoughts and opinions are my own.
What is the hardest part about being a parent? I think there are several things we could list off, but I found looking for childcare to absolutely top that list. There are so many factors to take into account and SO many websites and reviews to read through. Can I tell you what I wish I’d learned? I wish I’d learned about Quality Rated years ago!! It would’ve saved me so much stress and anxiety.
The Best Way To Find Childcare
What is the Quality Rated search tool? Let me tell you, so you can enjoy the amazingness of this. It’s a tool for Georgia parents that allows you to search for childcare based on price, distance, services offered, and Quality Rated star-rating. You can then take a deeper dive into each childcare center to see their inspection reports, hours, prices, teachers credentials and more. You can also search for different centers by the route you take to work! How convenient is that??
You may wonder what the Quality Rated star rating entails. I definitely did when I first heard about it. This is actually a system set up to help families identify the high-quality care centers in Georgia. Each program or childcare provider is individually evaluated by early childhood experts and rated at 1, 2, or 3 stars. Those centers that take part in this rating progress are making a vow to continue to try to provide the best education and care possible. . It may be also helpful to know that when you use the Quality Rated search tool, you can review all licensed and license-exempt providers in your community – not just those that have achieved a star rating.
DId you know about Quality Rated before this post? Will you use it for childcare?
Thanks for the info. It is hard to trust something like this without a personal recommendation, so a rating system is a huge help. Only the best for our kids!
This is a great tool! there is still room for improvement but I hope they extend their services to other regions. This is going to save us major time. Thanks for sharing
I’ve never heard of Quality Rated before. I wish this had been around when my kids were little. I always did my best to make sure I had a great person watching my kids, but honestly, before the internet it was really just a crap shoot.
Your kids are so cute.Happy to learn about this program.
What a great tool to help ease the stress of finding childcare that you can trust. The rating system would definitely help a parent find the childcare they’re comfortable with.
Since I don’t have kids, I don’t have to worry about finding child care, but I do want to know where you got those beautiful cookies!
Thank you for sharing this. I don’t have kids but I am going to share your article with my sister in law.
This is great – we plan on having a second one very soon and we were concerned about finding the right childcare! I’ll tell my hubby about Quality Rated.
Rating system really helps through crowdsourcing. So cool! I’ll share this to my sister.
We’ve never left our kids with anyone except family and friends of the family. I just don’t trust people.
I am all about reviews too! Making sure places are safe, and have good reviews is so important to me when it comes to childcare.
Thank you for sharing it. I don’t have young kids but I remember how hard it was to find good child care!
That’s awesome that there are things like this out there for child care. When my kids were younger, it was hard to find someone reputable to watch our kids. Thanks for sharing!
I havent heard of this before, although I have two little ones so will be looking into it.
