Quoting NDADanceMom:Ask if they are first aid/ infant CPR certified. Ask if they will be running errands with your child in tow or will they stay home. How do they handle sick days? Your baby's and theirs? Do they take vacations and holidays? Are you charged during their vacations and sick days? Do they have people over that are strangers to you and do they interact with your baby? How do they handle fevers? Do they have a reliable car available if your child is injured and needs medical attention? How do they handle a crying baby that needs a nap? Do they have other kids around and are they allowed to hold/ pick up the baby?
