Choosing the right child care provider that’s best suited to you, your child and your needs can be an extremely difficult decision to make. You want to choose a provider that you trust will take good care of your child while you are away. You also want a facility that engages children, and helps to prepare them for life in school! We've got some tips for you on what to think about as you look into different childcare options.
Monkey See Monkey Do is child care centre that offers the attention your child deserves. If you’re looking for a day care provider that offers an educational experience as well, Monkey See Monkey Do may be the right place for you!
When choosing a provider, there’s a lot to consider. As you start to research and visit childcare centres consider the following:
- What, as a parent, are you hoping for your child to get out of this experience? Are you looking for a centre that provides more than just basic child care?
- What is the centre’s philosophy? What is it that they want to achieve?
- What kind of look and feel is the centre giving off? Set up a tour! Have someone show you around. Are the children engaged in activities? Are they having fun?
- You want to find a centre that feels right, and you’ll know when you feel comfortable enough to leave your child somewhere.
- Something else to consider is if a centre is accepting of children with special needs. What community partners are linked to the centre?
Don't Forget to research references, reviews and feedback on each centre you visit.
This is not a decision that should be made lightly. Remember that the people you are choosing to care for your child will spend a great deal of time with them, and will have influence over their development.
