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
