If you are facing the difficult decision of having to place your child in daycare for the first time, do you know what options you have available?

child care, preschool, daycare, home care, babysitting

Have you thought of how many hours of care will you need? Would you prefer your child in a home environment or in a centre? How soon is too soon to have someone else take care of your child?

For those of you who have gone through this, what tips do you have for parents looking at their child care options? What questions should they ask before placing their little one in child care?

Costs is a big one for families, as well as asking for references. Recommendations from other mothers (friends and/or from your mothers group if you go to one) is also ideal. Otherwise, if you have the funds, and you can recruit well, then why not hire a nanny or babysitter. That way a bond will endure.
As a person who has worked in nearly all childcare roles I think parents should find out if the centre is accredited, what quality accreditation did they receive, what are their staff to child ratios, do the staff have first aid certificates and all the costs involved? A new rule came in recently that all childcare staff must be qualified now which is great news!
Family daycare is a great option for children who may be overwhlemed by a larger day care centre.
