My kids have always gone to family day care so I am totally comfortable (and prefer) the idea of one person looking after my kids as opposed to a centre based arrangement.
I would do it if I could vet the person, hell, it might even be a good way to make new friends! I would want to do a 'contract' of sorts though and set up alternate care in case of illness or holidays....

It just sounds like a lot of work. To go to the trouble of obtaining WWC and first-aid.... I wouldn't be comfortable at all if my little one was in another's care. I'd probably end up worrying lol Even with friends. My little girl goes to childcare, and even that took a lot of adjustment for both of us! I think this sort of arrangement is happening anyway in communities on a smaller scale. Just wouldn't work on a bigger scale. Not realistic in my opinion :
