According to a BabyCenter.com article, there are a few criteria that will help you narrow down your search for a daycare and will help you choose with confidence once you’ve found a likely candidate. According to the article, one of the most important things to seek out is a daycare with a positive reputation. Also be sure to check that any facility you’re interested in has an up-to-date state license. If not, move on!
Trained staff is another great benefit to look for in a daycare. The teacher-student ratio should also be another key factor in your decision.
