Child Care

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing between Center-based care and Home-based child care. No one choice is best for all situations. Armed with the same expectations you can choose based on the requirement of flexibility, program offerings, start or closing times, or other criteria. However, with the care and early education for your child do not choose a facility based solely on cost and then choose to compromise on quality. Like any business with a varied approach and philosophy, there are centers that can provide a good fit that provide everything your family requires. It may take a bit of searching and networking.

Everyone has a story about child care, even if they stayed home with their children. Gather as much information regarding situations and outcomes, staff personalities, locations, program offerings, and special considerations as possible and then use this information when you go to visit perspective centers. Be sure to ask for references, in addition to those you already found independently.
