Childcare

Unfortunately, the conference itself does not provide childcare resources. However, Indiana University recommends that you visit www.care.com to find a list of pre-screened babysitters and nannies in the Bloomington area. During Care.com’s pre-screening process, the service’s team:

  • Verifies profile information for accuracy
  • Cross checks the Better Business Bureau for accreditation and reputation ratings
  • Conducts an online media search for negative, newsworthy incidents
  • Performs an overall reputation check by reading a sample of online reviews

Since the information reviewed during the pre-screening process can change at any time, Care.com advises that you conduct your own research for any care providers under consideration. This may include checking the following:

  • Character and professional references
  • Criminal background
  • Driver’s records
  • Drug testing
  • Higher education and licensure verifications
  • Sex offender and child abuse registries
  • Credit history records
  • Social Security records
