Where to find the best day care for your baby in 2018!

Choosing a day care is one of the first and most important decisions you can make for your child, and the right day care or crèche will play a critical role in helping your child reach those developmental milestones. Here are some tips for finding the perfect fit for you and your little one.

  • Helpful, experienced staff: The day care’s team will oversee your child’s wellbeing while you’re away, so it’s important that they have the training and experience to keep your child happy, healthy and developing well. This includes educational and early childhood development training as well as first aid and child care training.
  • A good atmosphere: The best childcare centres have an open-door policy with parents, making you feel welcome from the start. You should be able to view the centre on open days as well as by making a private booking, and be able to speak to everyone who would be involved in your child’s care. They should also have good lines of communication with parents, keeping you updated about what’s happening in your child’s development and at the centre itself.
  • A holistic curriculum: An incredible amount of learning happens in the first few years of a child’s life, and the right day care will have a curriculum in place that supports this development. It should include age-appropriate activities that focus on learning through fun, and staff should track your child’s development throughout to support different strengths and weaknesses.
  • A convenient location: Day care will become part of your daily routine, so it needs to work with your day-to-day activities. It should have a central location that is close to the route you take to and from work, offer holiday care, and be open for drop off and collection at convenient times.
