APNA is 20 years old and we are still very committed to our original purpose, “to serve as the principal advocate and leadership organization for individuals and businesses engaged in referral of childcare providers and household staff.”
Our members are brick and mortar agencies that are the best of the best. APNA invests a lot of time making sure that our members are meeting the rigorous standards that APNA has set forth in making sure that children and families have the best care possible. We meet our applicants in person (when possible). We run thorough background checks in every county in which the applicant has lived. These background searches are much more rigorous than any on-line searches. We call the candidate’s references and spend time getting to know both our families and candidates to help make a match that will last. We go well beyond what an on-line listing service can offer. We build relationships with our candidates and families, and in turn, families get candidates who are the best match for their busy households.
While the industry is constantly changing, APNA agencies continue to thrive. Please consider being a part of our dynamic organization by joining us for a conference and applying for APNA membership today. Be a part of the best of the best.
