Choosing a Child Care Program

A registered or licensed program does not guarantee quality child care.  Only you can decide what is best for your child. Try to visit several child care programs before making your final decision.

  • Try to stay at the program for at least an hour
  • Check for safety
  • Ask questions
  • Watch activities
  • Ask for references and contact them
