Day Care - 7 tips:
1. A “good school” is safe. Children should have proper supervision inside the school by caring and attentive staff and the surrounding area should be safe. All daycare, preschool, and after school staff and personnel should go through a thorough back ground check, and be free of any improprieties, too.
2. A “good preschool” is educational. A good Preschool should have a program that supports student development academically, emotionally, physically, and socially. It should have a prescribed, structured curriculum and evidence of student learning should be displayed prominently. Some parents are also looking for a place that will develop their child spiritually.
3. A “good Day Care” is fun. Yes, that’s right. A daycare, preschool, or after school setting should be a place of joy, where children can laugh, be creative, and use their imagination.
4. A “good school” is affordable. It should not be cheap. That means you aren’t getting quality. However, you shouldn’t have to take out a 2nd mortgage to pay tuition either. Just make sure that you are aware that you get what you pay for and there are rarely exceptions.
5. A “good ChildCare” has modern, professional facilities. It should not be a converted house or back room, as if it’s an afterthought. You need to know that your child is in a place with room to move, updated heating and air, proper plumbing, and wiring that’s sound.
6. A “good afterschool program” has professional and courteous staff. Teachers are certified and student-centered. They should uphold and live a high moral standard and be good role models.
7. A “good school” is reliable. Hours are posted and adhered to. Policies are shared and consistently followed. Daycare, preschool, and after school teachers are punctual, respectful, communicative, competent, and permanent.
