What to look for when you enroll your child in child care
Every child and family has different needs regarding the type of care that works for them. We encourage you to schedule visits with prospective child care programs during the day when you can observe them in action and see if they meet your needs.
Consider the following before enrolling:
1.The number of staff and children in a program;
2.Daily routines and activities;
3.Consider the cost, location and hours of operation;
4.Experiences of other parents and their children.
