Top Qualities of a Great Child Care Facility


Finding a daycare or child care center for your children can be an exhausting task. You want only the best for your kids, understandably. There are a few things that should be on your list to ensure that your child is provided with an exceptional environment in which to spend his or her mornings, afternoons, or all day. When looking for child care be sure the following characteristics are met!

First Aid/CPR Certified Staff

One of the most important things to identify about a potential child care facility is if the staff is trained in first aid and CPR protocols. This could be the difference in a life and death situation. While it's no secret that kids do get scratched and bruised, should a child be injured at all it is integral they get appropriate care right away.

MAT Certified Staff

A staff that has received Medication Administration Training has the ability to distribute medications that are both over the counter and prescription. The staff will be versed on the effects of medication, how to prepare, store and handle special mediations and be able to conduct proper administration techniques.

Transportation to and from area schools

Provided transportation is a great way to ensure your children make it safely from their school to the daycare center.

Homework Assistance

Homework is a big part of any age these days so it is likely your child is going to have something to do just about every night of the week. A daycare center should have a staff member available to offer assistance with any homework needs.

Social Development

Developing social skills young is a great way to help lock down a successful social and professional life for years and years into the future. A child care center that helps develop proper social habits because they understand how important they are, should be near the top of your list!
