No complaints

We found no complaints, other than one gripe from a nanny who got taken by a check fraud and thought the site should have done a better job warning people. Let us warn you: If a prospective employer sends you a check that’s for more than the cost of your services and asks you to refund the excess to them “after the check clears,” DON’T DO IT. This is a popular scam that is prevalent on both job and sales sites (like eBay and CraigsList). This story at CBS News explains how it works.

UrbanSitterNannyLane, Bambino, and RideZum also offer positions for nannies. If you want your own daycare center, Wonderschool seems like a useful resource.
