Choosing a Daycare for Your Child:
More and more children are spending time in daycare with parents having to work longer hours to keep making ends meet. Choosing the right place to put your child into daycare is obviously extremely important, and there are a number of tips to follow to make sure that you make the right choices.
One tip is to look out for accredited daycare programs, with those which have approval from the likes of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the National Association of Child Care being especially ideal. Another good tip is to call the Childcare Aware Hotline on 1800-424-2246 as they can provide you with the number for a local childcare resource which will be able to assist with finding fully licensed daycare programs in your area.
It is always important to visit the program in person, interview the program leaders and check their references. If you do not feel completely comfortable with the idea of leaving your child in the program, then do not do so.
