My 11 month old son will be starting a daycare 3 days a week soon. I am having a hard time picking one. I really hate the idea of just placing him in any daycare and I can't find any reviews online. I called a few places and I am going to see a few but I'd really love to hear opinions from Moms. Anyone have any recommendations for Allentown, PA? We are also a little strapped for cash so please don't suggest any of these places that are charging $210 a wk. Yikes!

Hi I would recommend reading your local news paper. I know what you mean about $$ and your concer for your lil one. I use to pay for care for my 1st one $260 a week in MD. Now that I have move to PA abt 1 1/2 yr. I have struggle with daycare and babysitting. Thanks god I finally found a sitter after going for 7 different onece. I found her on the local news paper called Sential..She charge $2 per hr per child. When finding a Child care or Sitter make sure you think about what fits your schedule and budget and most important the place were ur child will be.If the place its not perfect u will get a feeling about it.(Mother sence) Think abt what they charge,how many kids,how many providers,There calendar like holidays,hourse. if any chrg if the provider goes on vacation(home daycare) If u pay the same rate even if you dont take your child. Policy abt when child is sick. Most daycare will tell you what you want to hear but u will notice with the time. Think that if you put your kid in a Hope this help if any further questions feel free to write me license provider you will claim it in your tax refund but babysitters you wont. But also think what is the best place no matter what the price is as it can be a daycare aswell babysitter. I have experiance so much with my 2 lil ones as child care and babysitting.
