I have a 5 year old, going to be 3 year old and, will be 1 year old when we move to Bradenton in July. My 5 year old will be attending kindergarten at Peace Lutheran which is 1611 30th ave West bradenton and I'd like to find a pre-k/ daycare either near there or by the apartments we decided to rent at which is the 210 Watermark for my 3 and 1 year old. Does anyone have any good suggestions for a daycare around either areas? I would only need part time care and I was possibly considering putting an add in the paper to have an at home nanny, but not sure how safe that would be. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I'd never put an ad in the paper for a nanny. Go through a professional nanny service to get someone bonded and/or insured and that you know has first aid/cpr instruction.

Florida is full of weirdos and it isn't impossible you could get one of them raising your kids.

Good luck.

Yes I kind of figured that would not be a safe decision. I did not know there were agencies. Thank you for the advice, I will definitely get in touch with one if I decide to go that route.

We put our daughter in Thompson preschool and loved it...they have since done some reorganizing and moved. There new address is 1212 w 43rd st. They don't have anyone to answer phones full time from what I remember. The owner, Cindy Thompson is very sweet though...our daughter is 6 now but we loved it there...they have flexible hours and aren't super High in price...

Here is a web site that you can search for day care providers and you can read their inspection reports and see how they are rated by the state. Child Care Provider Search - SansWrite Public Web Portal
