Have additional questions?
Q: How long does it take for you to find a spot for my child?
Once we receive your child’s information, we will contact you if there are spots available in the area in which you are seeking care within two to four months of when regular care will begin.
Q: When do I meet the providers? Do I contact them myself?
If there are child care spaces available in the area in which you are seeking care, TotLot will contact you with information about the providers who are available, and you choose the providers you wish to meet. Once you have chosen, we will set up interviews for you to meet the providers in their homes. Interviews are generally held during the evening or on weekends, so that providers can give you their undivided attention.
Q: After the interview process, am I obligated to choose one of your providers?
You are not under any obligation to choose a TotLot provider. If we have potential providers available for you to interview, our hope is that you meet someone you feel comfortable with, who would be a good fit for your family.
Q: What is ‘transition care’?
Transition care is the period where a child is eased into care, before regular care begins.ﾠ The transition period can be anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks, depending on how comfortable the child is about being left with others.
Q: What will this cost me?
There are no fees associated with the interview process. We will do our best to find a spot for your child, free of charge! Only once you have selected a TotLot provider, will you be asked to submit a non-refundable deposit to hold your child’s spot in that provider’s home. Child care rates vary depending on the region, the hours of care, the days of care, whether or not you have selected a provider with a background in Early Childhood Education (ECE), and if you have multiple children (sibling discounts are available). Please contact us for specific rate information.
