Where Love & Learning Overlap, 

How do you find quality care for your child?


#1 Interview with multiple providers
#2 Interview Centers and Homes
#3 Do not look at prices until you have visited no less than 4 local daycares
#4 Phone interviews are the fastest way to weed out daycares you will not meet your families needs.
#5 LISTEN TO YOUR GUT!  No childcare will be perfect!  Decide what is most important and don't give up until you find it.
#6 READ REVIEWS!  Most companies today have an online identity.  If they do not, ask for professional references
#7 Ask about their experience and education
#8 CALL   IDAHO STARS
#9 A Licensed daycare is no guarantee of quality, ask questions!! 
#10 Communicate with you a couple times a week, concerning your child and daycare
