Questions to Ask a Snellville Child Care Center

Many parents consider enrolling their child in a care center during the day, but they are not quite sure where to start. While doing your research, you may look into reviews online or ask for referrals, but you also want to make sure you speak with the center and ask certain questions. Before you go into any of the child care centers you have narrowed down your choices to, make sure you have these questions ready.

How Safe Is the Facility?

Above all else, parents worry about the safety of their children when they are in the care of another person. When you enroll your child into a center, you want to know that they will be safe. Ask the staff you’re touring with how safe the facility is from dangerous objects or even illnesses. Safety and cleanliness should be of the utmost importance.

Will My Child Get Enough Attention?

Ask if there is a reasonable staff-to-child ratio so you can be sure that your child is receiving the attention he or she deserves. A child care center is about safety, education, and development. If a child is not receiving enough attention, this may be more difficult to achieve and your child won’t receive help with some of the struggles he or she may have.

What Is Your Curriculum?

Education is another important part of child care, especially because many of the programs are designed to get younger students ready for school or provide an after school program. Make sure the center’s curriculum is designed to promote the development of children educationally and understand what your child will be learning.

What Kind of Food is Served?

If you’re leaving your child at the center for a majority of the day, they will most likely be fed a meal. Because of this, you should make sure that your child will be receiving healthy, nutritious, and balanced meals in order to help their healthy. You don’t want your child eating food that isn’t fresh or contains junk foods.
