Many busy families depend on a daycare or extended preschool facility to look after their young child during the workday. This decision can be a difficult one as there are so many variables to consider and so many different locations claiming to offer the best care for your child. If you are searching for the best choice for your child, keep the following qualities in mind:

1. Security Measures - When you visit a childcare facility, take note of how easily you can enter the building, if anyone is present to greet you, and how the staff treats all visitors. This gives you an overall idea of the normal security protocols that are exhibited on a daily basis.

2. Atmosphere - Children thrive in environments that are clean, colorful, and spacious. You will want your child to be cared for in a room that is neatly organized with toys and books that will help them learn and socialize.

3. Daily Nutrition - Ask to see a menu to see what your child will be served on a daily basis. At Kids ‘R’ Kids we have an on-site chef to ensure our meals our fresh and made with the best ingredients. Remember, nutritional eating habits learned at an early age will help create a foundation for healthy eating as they continue to grow.

4. Staff Qualifications - Ask about the educational qualifications of the teachers. While teenage babysitters may be appropriate for watching one or two children in the comfort of your own home, it takes professional training, education, and maturity to lead and manage a room full of young children. A degree in early childhood education or a related-field is highly preferred. Having at least several years experience at a daycare or as a teacher is also important.

5. Diverse and Rich Curriculum - Look for a preschool that offers accredited curriculum from trustworthy names in Early Education such as AdvancED, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and others. By learning through an accredited and proven curriculum, your child will likely develop advanced cognitive, intellectual and social skills.
