SmartKidsChildCare.com highlights the things you need to look for in a daycare facility:


It is important that your daycare be near your home, especially if your child is young. It is convenient, and you can check on what is happening in case of an emergency. A facility in your neighborhood also means you probably know the other kids in the daycare and their parents.


Sit in on a session to observe how the caregivers relate to the children. Young children need to feel safe in their environment, so caregivers should be warm and caring towards them. Observe how the children act around their caregivers. Some caregivers can fake warmth and caring when they know they are under observation. Your best clue is the children. It is a good sign if they seem at ease and comfortable.


The daycare facility should be clean, safe and child-friendly. Children need a lot of space to play, so it should have plenty of activity areas and a playground. Check if the equipment is safe for your child’s age, and find out the rules for supervision for small children.

You need to make sure that your child is safe. Choose your daycare facility well, so your child gets the best possible care outside the home. Take your time, and go with your instincts. If you feel there is something wrong, do not ignore it. Look for another facility to entrust your child.
