In-Home-Care Placements are a unique and special challenge requiring an agency that has extensive experience in understanding each family's needs, and each care provider's qualifications.

Founded by Betsy Newman in 1991 as 'A Choice Nanny', Childcare Solutions® has been bringing families and qualified registered care providers together for over two decades. Childcare Solutions has made over 10,000 child care job placements in northeast Ohio since 1991 and served thousands of local families and businesses, helping them meet their unique child care needs. Michael Gerard acquired the company in 1999 and has continued to develop professional administrative and business systems to enhance services and meet the needs of clients.

To further serve the northeast Ohio community and support our own continued growth, Childcare Solutions acquired the assets of Buckingham Nannies and Housekeepers® from Maxine Turkington in November of 2002. In the spring of 2004 we added professional DOULAs to our list of available services. In 2005, Childcare Solutions launched The Sitter Cafe - the first web site in the US designed both to help families locate local babysitters and to protect care providers from predators, incorporating state-of-the-art ID Verification systems and hyper-accurate geo-coding technology.

Childcare Solutions is recognized nationally as a leader in private child care referral and placement services. We are frequently sought out by the media when they are researching trends and best practice information regarding the in-home child care industry. Mr. Gerard can often be seen quoted in magazine and newspaper throughout the US. Mr. Gerard has served as an adjunct to the board of directors of the INA (International Nanny Association) managing the INA's Educational Resources website section and is a past board member of the APNA (Alliance of Premier Nanny Agencies).

Today, based on the job description you provide - whether your needs call for a part-time child care provider or the services of an experienced household manager - we are ready to provide you with qualified candidates for your consideration.

At Childcare Solutions we are dedicated to providing each client family the most personal and professional referral services available. We will not hesitate to refer you to another organization if we feel we cannot help you or believe that you may be better served elsewhere. We never lose our focus: Our continued growth and success depend on your satisfaction. We appreciate and take great pride that over 75% of our new client families and nannies are referred to us through word-of-mouth recommendations.

We will be happy to share with you our experience in placing care providers in different types of situations and provide you insight into the selection process. Having completed over 10,000 placements since 1991, Childcare Solutions is uniquely qualified to assist you in your search.
