STEPS TO FINDING CHILD CARE
Whether you are looking for a child care center, preschool, family child care home or school-age site, here are steps that CCSA suggests you follow when selecting child care:
Make a list of what you want to know about a program. Visit a minimum of three child care programs and spend at least an hour at each site that you are considering. View the Child Care Referral Central’s Quality Child Care Checklists for program quality indicators and additional tips to aid your search.
If you are considering a home child care situation use Child Care Referral Centrals’ Home Checklist (PDF).
Once you have made your decision, become an involved parent. Become a regular visitor or volunteer as your schedule allows.
