Elite Alternatives was originally established in 1986 by Carol Jones to provide the best childcare services in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Since our inception, we have dedicated ourselves to representing the most well-trained, experienced, and educated child care providers available. As a Dallas mainstay, we add tremendous value by streamlining the process of seeking the most important person you will ever hire to care for your child and home. All of our Elite Families are served with the utmost discretion and professionalism. You can trust Elite Alternatives. Our staff is strongly encouraged to have child development and newborn care specialist training taught by Molly, a RN who has a Master’s in Child Life Specialist in Family Studies. Our staff is also trained in areas such as table etiquette, formal serving, child nutrition, and in creative cooking involving child interaction. In her early years, while getting her degree in child development and working as an undercover agent investigating daycares and nanny services, Carol saw that child care screening was quite limited. That is why Carol founded Elite Alternatives: to set some much needed standards. Carol encourages her applicants to take the training in newborn care as well as nanny classes taught by Molly.
Our guarantee: Carol prides herself on commitment of the first three years of a child’s life. The first 3 years of a child’s brain development such as touch, movement, emotion, secure attachment, sharing toys, and potty training is important and will get you through to preschool age and on to become our little scientists, doctors, artists, etc. Carol prides herself in being diverse, not just a babysitting agency but rather an agency that permanently places a professional caregiver that is a perfect fit for your family. For the last 30 years, Carol has purposefully chosen to not delegate any of her processes for the sole reason of standing in confidence for every Elite Alternatives placement. One of Carol Jones sole responsibilities is to recruit, screen, and hand-select top qualified candidates for your unique family dynamic. This confidence translates to your family as a 3 year guarantee: “If any employee quits without cause during their contract, for up to three (3) years, Elite Alternatives will replace them at no additional charge to the employer.”
