I searched this topic & found some pretty good comments & suggestions on an older thread, but I wanted to post what I have so far and see if any of you lovely Bees have anything to add 🙂
I’m not due until April 5th, and I have maternity leave as well as parents who live locally, so daycare is something that we’re considering for a little later. So many of the facilities near us have wait lists, so we want to tour and put our names in as soon as possible!
Here’s what I have so far:
What is the ratio of caretakers to children?
What percentage of providers are CPR certified?
What is the fire or emergency evacuation plan?
What age range is in the baby room?
How much time per day are babies in cribs/playpens?
Is there outside time each day (weather permitting)?
What is the provider retention rate?
What are the procedures for babies on breastmilk? What happens if a bottle of breastmilk is dropped or spilled?
Do you allow cloth diapering?
What is the procedure for alerting parents of illness or injury?
What is your policy for an infant on medication?
How do you handle food allergies?
What are your policies and procedures dictating who may pick up the child?
What is the sick policy for staff?
What are your rates for full time daycare?
What constitutes part time?
Anything I missed, overlooked, or didn’t think about? Thanks so much for your input 🙂
