It is important that parents know what they should expect from a childcare provider. In addition, parents should know what kinds of questions to ask before choosing a prospective childcare provider. We have developed the following Quality Checklist to help parents in need of childcare.
This Quality Checklist measures a childcare service in 4 categories: programs, staff, health & safety, and staff/parent communication.
