Who uses care.com for pets, advertising for daycare, a babysitter for your own children? I would like to sign up but is it worth it?Thank you.

I have used the "free listing" from care.com for listing my daycare and have gotten several clients from it.

Awhile back they contacted me to see if I was interested in upgrading to a "paid listing", but since I didn't need to fill any spots, I held off doing that for now.

I have used it in the past to sit for other parents. I haven't paid because I don't see a need. Parents email when they are interested in my services and they request the background check , but it hasnt cost me a penny. I will say that recently i have received several annoting scam attempt emails and that makes me a nit uncomfortable. All in all it seems to be okay for the free membership. I have thought about advertising up there when I open and would be curious to know from other providers if it is beneficial at all.

I get all of my clients through them. However, I can't update my 3 year old profile because I am a licensed home daycare. They told me I have to list as a business. I recently got an email titled "update or else." So, I guess we'll see what happens.

I've gotten a few families from Care.com but it's normally me contacting them. Craigslist is the best place for me, and word of mouth.

I'm assuming you are talking about finding care for YOUR children and not using it to find children to watch?

I have considered doing that to find someone to babysit our two children (very rarely) so we could have at least a little bit of alone time (like if we want to watch an adult movie or go out to eat...just me and my husband, once every 2 or 3 months). My mom has watched them on occasion but she isn't always reliable.

Is it free or does it cost money?
