I got my two part time childcare jobs with www.care.com and www.sittercity.com. I had extensive interviews, had my finger prints done, had a background check, and gave several references all of whom were called. I know a lot will say don't go to a website but the families I help do not have any family nearby and did their homework. I did mine too checking out their references etc. Meet in a public place for the first time and don't give out any personal phone numbers, etc until you know it might progress to the next step. Good luck!!
