How did you choose your daycare?  Any advice?  Any warnings?  I have no idea where to start!

Re: *FLVintageBride** or anyone with experience

  • When I was looking for my daughter I started by check which local centers were accredited.  Here is a link to a site with different accreditation organizations- NAEYC is a very popular and well-respected one:

    I did a lot of calling around to price out and ask basic questions about class size, sick policies, etc. and then I visited the ones I was most interested in.  If you have friends with kids, it's always good to start with leads too.  If you are looking for in-home child care centers or a nanny-share or something like that, SitterCity dot com can also be a very helpful resource.

    Good luck finding the best child care for your Novem-baby!

  • I worked in a daycare all through college and some tips I have are

    1. what is the child to teacher ratio

    2. what kind of schedule do they follow

    3. will they give you a daily sheet telling you when and what a diaper change/ how much she ate/ when naps and how long ect..

    4. what is playtime like in each room

    5. can you come in at anytime to feed/rock/observe baby

  • Gosh...the prices are crazy!  $300 a week for infants?  I was thinking $200.

    What is reasonable?

    It totally depends on where you live.  I have my baby on the waitlist for the day care center at work and it is currently $1345/month.  This is in DC.
