How to Choose a Child Care Facility

Choosing a care facility for your child is an important decision. Ideally, you'll choose a care center with opportunities for your child to learn and develop more social skills. Many parents enroll children in preschool to prepare them for the stresses of kindergarten. When picking a day care facility, be sure to trust your instincts, ask lots of questions, and follow these tips.

  • Make at least two visits to each possible center. The first visit should be to assess the program. If you like the facility, bring your child for the second visit. Then watch how your child interacts with the staff and other children.
  • Verify the facility has a license. Each state will have a list of licensed facilities. You should also be able to determine if there are any complaints against the center.
  • Ask for references. Every facility you visit should be happy to offer a list of references to prospective clients.
  • Ask if the day care facility specializes in a specific age group. Your child will be most comfortable with peers. Therefore, try to pick a facility that has other students the same age as your kid. Choosing a specialty center, such as a preschool, can also be a good idea.
  • Inquire about staff training. Well-trained staff will be able to talk knowledgeably about developmental milestones and age-appropriate activities.
  • Get a schedule of fees. While some facilities offer all-inclusive tuition, many other centers offer a basic rate, which is then augmented with additional fees. If your child needs to stay late one day or if you must cancel an appointment, know if you will incur extra charges.
