Choosing a Child Care Provider
If you are a parent choosing a child care provider, here are some helpful tips to remember.
Ask the provider for references
Carefully interview with a provider
Contact the county licenser to find out if any complaints have been filed
The provider you choose should fit your child's needs and your beliefs. It is important to discuss all of their policies so you fully understand them, although it may not be possible to agree with all of the provider's policies.
