CHOOSING A PROVIDER

Choosing the right provider to fit your family can be intimidating, here are some things to look for when visiting a child care center.​

1

How does the provider speak with children? Do they speak with them at the children’s eye level by sitting, crouching, or kneeling? Do they greet each child?

2

Look at the classroom layout. Can the providers always see the children?​

3

How does the classroom/child care space look?. Is it well organized and clean?  ​

4

Do the outdoor and indoor spaces used for play look safe? Are the play equipment and toys clean and in good condition? Do they look safe and appropriate? ​

5

Do the teachers/providers and children frequently wash their hands?​

6

Are there sounds of laughter and children playing?​
