Choosing the right child care for your child or children may need to be a following a combination of feelings and intellect. How did you feel when
you first entered the family childcare
home? Would you enjoy visiting there
again? If you felt uncomfortable, it
may be a sign that something is not right. On the other hand, entering that home with a written list of things you are looking for can be helpful.
Does the childcare home meet the state requirements? Are there too many kids for the license issued to this home?
Is there a safety concern? Check to see that the electrical outlets are covered or
at least made unavailable for children to experiment with.
Do the care providers yell at kids? Check to see if this is a constant practice or just the result of unusual stress at the moment.
