As a parent, choosing a secure day care must be one of the high-priority tasks on your agenda. I am a mother with 2 young toddlers. One is 3 years old and the other one is only 2 years old. I would like to share my opinions and tips to help you find a right day care for your children.

How to choose a good day care for your child

1 – Visit the day care center several times before you sign a contract with them.

Your child is a human, not a machine or an object. Therefore, before you send him or her to a new place to be taken cared by others for a whole day, you should take time to visit and get more real information about this place before you sign a day care contract. Each visit to the day care should be planned for different moments. For example, sometimes you can visit the day care centre at around 3:00 in the afternoon as to know if the day care teachers guide the children to learn new knowledge or organise the children to play games as they promise on the contract. Besides, you can visit the center during lunch time to check if they really provide nutritive food to the children as they promise to you.

Why do I recommend this point? Because I had one very bad experience before. I had trusted one private day care center and they had promised to provide good services to take care of my young toddler. However, finally, I found out they had kept 8 children inside a small room for a whole day, no outdoor activities or no intellectual games as they had promised. Finally, to protect my child, I had to cancel the contract with this private day care center.

2 – Check if there are smiles on the face of the children.

Before you send your child to a new day care, you should check out the comments about this day care center from other parents as to know if the day care center provides enough care to the children there. When you visit the place for the first time, look at the children there to see if they smile often. Young toddlers don’t know how to use complete sentences to express their feeling, but their facial expression can tell you most of their real feelings. If you see the children there don’t smile at all and they look too much quiet for their age, don’t take the risk of sending your loving child there.

3 – Ask the day care center if they have installed some camera to record the daily activities of the children.

Secure camera is a good way to supervise the day care service, especially the private ones. If something happens, you can always ask the center to replay the video to let you know what exactly happens to your child. It’s an effective way to supervise the day care service and protect your children.
