Any tips on finding In Home Day Care in Chicago's Northwest Suburbs? I've surfed the web and haven't found a list or site (that's seems reliable!). Any help would be great! Thanks!

What can I do next?

A.-try contacting the local business daycares-a lot of them will make referrals to in home daycares. I've used an inhome daycare in Arlington Hts - however I know that they are full currently. I also contacted the Dept of Child and Family Services and they sent me a packet on inhome daycares-what to look for, names of people in the area, etc

I also looked on line when I thought about going back to work (I'm still at home with my 19 mo. old). I got a list of licensed in-home day care and day care centers from IL Dept. of Children & Family Services (Action for Children). They'll give you a list for whichever town you ask for. You should look up their web-site (Sorry, I can't seem to find it). I also called individual people (not licensed) from ads I found in local newspapers under "situations wanted." Try the Pioneer Press NW edition or the Daily Herald.

I've had pretty good luck looking in the daily herald...

I used a referral agency through the county which I had great luck. If you go to the website and look for your office (Cook County) you will need to call and they will ask youa few questions. There is a minimal fee of about $10 or $20. Once you give all your information you can have a list emailed to you that day. They send you something in the mail for payment. I referred this to someone else also on this website. They will give you many names according to what you would like. No pets, no smoking etc. Hope this helps
