    Care.com is the most unprofessional site out there. I’m a teacher, an Ivy league grad, a mom, and a nanny for over 15 years. I was terminated from the site for absolutely NO reason. I ran a daycare of 200 children for years, I have NO criminal background, am OCC and ECC certified, and was unlawfully terminated for no reason. Nannies watch out for them, this is a sketchy site.

    Its obvious that Care.com believes it can raise tons of money ($110 million thus far) and buy up the business without any experience at operating such a service.
