Like family daycare but not through a scheme.

I would look at:
Ask for any qualifications or experience the person has
the house,whether it is child safe
The children there:
You tend to get a gut feeling when it comes to someone watching your child.trust it
And maybe leave your child for a few hours and see how they enjoy it,
I used a family day care and I counted nappies so I could see how often they were changed and such

Ok, I have qualifications, have worked in the field since 1998, first aid, cpr, blue card, food handlers, council has inspected the kitchen and house, car has been inspected by a mechanic, QAS installed the carseats and wrote a letter to say they have, I can only have 3 including my own so low numbers, child safety have looked at the house and I had to sign to say they could do random visits to make sure a daily plan/program is up, ensure the house is clean and make sure I have no poisons or sharp objects or toys that are unsafe or not age appropriate.

I would obviously look for all the practical safety type things you have mentioned. Other things that I would look for is someone that has similar philosophy on children as my DP and I. Also how old are the other children in care and how would my child fit in.
