4 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Day Care Services, Concord, North Carolina

For working parents, day care services provide the essential task of looking after your children while you’re at work, but they’re a lot more than a simple babysitting service. They provide early childhood education, socialization skills, art and music lessons, meal services, and exercise through play, to name just a few. But to ensure your little one is getting the most from your child care center, you need to do more than drop them off each morning. Below are a few ways to maximize the benefits of your day care center.

4 Tips to Get the Most From Your Day Care Service

1. Make Sure It’s the Best Fit 

day care serviceLocation, price, and hours are all important factors to keep in mind when choosing a day care center. Before you commit to a facility, simply because it’s convenient for you, make sure it’s a good fit for your child’s personality and interests. For example, if you have an active child, make sure they have adequate outdoor play time scheduled each day. If your child has special needs, look for a developmental day care program to help them flourish. And if your little one is still an infant, choose a well-rounded program they can grow into.

2. Volunteer

If your child care center offers opportunities for parents to get involved with the program, sign up! From helping with special events, attending performances, reading to the class, or simply bringing in snacks for holiday parties, contributing to your child’s experience in whatever way you can will make you feel connected to the program and give you valuable insight into how your child spends their days.

3. Chat With the Staff

Working parents have a lot on their plate, and although you’re probably tempted to keep drop-offs and pick-ups short and sweet (allowing you to go about your busy day) it’s important to take the time to chat with the teachers regularly. Ask how your child’s day was, and inquire about any discipline, learning, or socialization issues your child may be dealing with.

4. Say Yes to Play Dates

Once your child is in day care, you’ll start receiving invitations for birthday parties and play dates. Say yes whenever you can. It’s not only good for your child to make friends and socialize with others outside of the class environment, but it’s good for you too. You can spend time with other parents, share information and advice, and you may even make a friend.
