Marion’s Childcare, Inc, is a referral service for caregivers. The caregiver works directly for you; not Marion’s Childcare, Inc. We make every reasonable effort to screen our caregivers including background checks, reference screens, and in-person interviews. You agree to hold Marion’s Childcare, Inc., harmless from any damages incurred by sitters we refer. You agree not to hire Marion’s Childcare caregivers directly through them, but to always go through the agency.
