Advice regarding nanny or caregiver for 10 month old
I am moving to Oakland at the end of March and I am trying to figure out if it is best to get a nanny or childcare center for my 10 month old. The rate of the nannies I have interviewed is $25-30 per hour, does this seem to be the average rate? I also found a daycare center but they have a capacity of 24 infants which seems a bit high to me, although their caregiver to infant ratio is 1:4. I will need childcare full time and being a first time mom I am really overwhelmed especially moving to a new area. Any recommendations on daycare centers or where to find nannies would be greatly appreciated.
