Ask Questions of Your Daycare Center

You can their staff some questions and inquire about issues you consider important to clarify, as well as talk to other parents who have their children at the respective daycare center.

Choosing the right pre-K daycare center is important for the childhood development of your kid. Some of the signs of a good pre-K daycare center are:

· A current license

· A good reputation

· A stimulating curriculum

· Established ground rules

· A qualified, caring staff

· Clean, safe facilities

· Healthy food

When choosing a pre-K daycare center for your child you’ll need to be observant and ask plenty of questions. Because the best centers fills up fast, it is recommended to start your search about six months before your kid will need childcare. There are not so many centers that have been accredited, so you’ll have to choose from the best options and decide what’s most important for you. For many parents close location is a crucial criterion. You may wish to have a daycare within walking distance from your house or from your work.

Daycare and the Right Environment For Your Kids

You also have to look for good reputation. A proper pre-K daycare center should be well known for its nurturing environment and have a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You may ask the center for names and phone numbers of current clients and check with them for references. You may also stop by during the pickup time and approach some parents with questions about their impression on the center.

A big red flag is if the daycare center tries to dissuade you talking to your fellow parents.

Established ground rules are also important in a good daycare center. It should be a balance between established regulation on how to handle emergencies and the operation hours, but it is also important for a daycare center to be flexible and allow you to pick up and drop off your kid at different times, for example.
