What are some good ways to go about finding a childcare provider?

I would prefer an in-home daycare setting, but I don't know where to start looking.

  • There are 52 licensed in-home daycares in the Greenville area. Here is a list of them, along with their contact info, hours available, and any reports that have been made against them. http://childcare.sc.gov/main/general/facilities/search/resultsList.aspx?name=&operator=&type=C&county=&city=Greenville&radius=250&zip=29601

  • Get references from friends. Oddly enough when I started thinking about daycare for my twins before my return to work I posted a status on Facebook that caught the attention of a friend/co-worker of mine who's best friend runs an in home daycare. She turned out to the be the person we chose to look after our children! She is FABULOUS and because I had such a great reference from someone who had known her practically all her life, I had no qualms about the safety or well being of my babies when they went to her house to be cared for the first day I returned to work. And she's been great ever since. GL..it's such a hard thing to find someone you trust!
