Choosing an infant or child care provider is not an easy decision for any new parent. Placing a baby or young child into the care of another, along with a new environment is a daunting proposition. Knowing what questions to ask when deciding upon a qualified provider is essential. This piece from Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Lawrenceville will highlight some of the important questions to ask when comparing daycare providers.

How does the provider handle emergencies?

One of the most important questions you can ask is if the provider has an established plan for emergency situations. Their answer should be clear and concise. If the staff struggles with a response, seems hesitant, or simply does not give you a direct answer, they possibly lack this essential documentation. This would not be a provider of choice for your family.

What is the policy for ill children?

Infants and preschoolers are more susceptible to colds, ear infections and other ailments due to their developing immune system. You need to ask your childcare provider how illnesses are handled, and how absences due to illness might affect a child’s learning goals. Will a child be sent home with early symptoms of a cold or does it take something more serious, such as a fever, for a provider to notify parents?

What is on the menu?

Parents and infant care providers vary in opinion of what is considered a balanced, healthy, and nutritional meal. Meals sometimes cannot be individualized for a specific child with food allergies, unless food is provided by the parents for serving while at daycare. If your child suffers with food allergies, verify that it is documented and that you fully understand the school’s policies and procedures regarding meals and nutrition.
