Choosing the Right Child Care Center

Selecting the right child care center is a very important decision for every parent. Naturally you’ll want to do an on‑site visit. There’s a lot to consider. Here are a few suggestions to help you through the process.

  • Is the center licensed Type I, Type II, or Type III? Is the license prominently posted?
  • Is the center Star Rated so that you would qualify for the School Readiness Tax Credit?
  • Do the teachers have their Ancillary Teaching Certificates?
  • How long have the teachers been working at the center?
  • Are the teachers at child level?
  • Do you observe a lot of one‑on‑one interactions?
  • Are the children happy?
  • Is there a curriculum used in the classroom? Which one?
  • Is the curriculum age appropriate for early childhood?
  • What is the discipline policy?
  • Is there a parent handbook?
  • Is the center clean?
  • Are you able to drop by unannounced?
  • Does the center provide additional perks, such as swimming, specials, observation windows
