What to look for in a quality Childcare service

Step 5

Follow up on the childcare you have chosen for you child

Check regularly that you have made the right choice:

  • You will want to make sure that the childcare service you have chosen continues to be a good choice for your child, their needs and your needs. It is important that you visit the childcare service regularly to see for yourself how your child is doing.
  • Leave yourself enough time to talk to the childcare provider and staff members when you drop off or pick up your child. If you have concerns or questions, talk to them to arrive at a solution that works for all of you.
  • Remember talk to your child about their day and really listen to what they tell you. It will of course take time for the child to adjust to a new situation, but this shouldn't take too long.
