“Child Care Aware” Warns Of Summer Child Care Providers

The busy summer vacation season has arrived and with professional nannies and babysitters already full-up with kids, some parents need to make plans for back-up child care. Karen Fogolin with Child Care Aware says there are some options through schools and park and rec programs, while other parents may seek out a local teenager or college student. She says when doing so, parents should have a checklist that includes first aid skills, C-P-R training and other important items. Fogolin says with any type of care, the key is to be informed. She notes that Child Care Aware has information that can help parents in identifying guidelines for appropriate summer care.
