Children Daycare provide: Child Early Learning and Development
In some cases a good daycare can provide different experiences than parental care does, especially when children reach two and are ready to interact with other children.
Children in high quality child care develop somewhat better language and cognitive development during the first 4½ years of life than those in lower quality care. They are also somewhat more cooperative than those who experienced lower quality care during the first 3 years of life.
As a matter of social policy, consistent, good daycare, may ensure adequate early childhood education for children of less skilled parents. From a parental perspective, good daycare can complement good parenting.
A children in a high-quality care typically score higher on tests of language, memory and other skills than children in lower-quality day care.
What To Look For When Choosing A Daycare
A daycare facility is established essentially to provide a caring environment for children while
their parents or guardians are away at work or for some reason cannot take care of them full-
time, but are open to leaving them with qualified staff and helpers for a certain period every day
where they are confident the child will be safe and happy. However, this is only the very basic
outline of what a daycare should provide children: with state licensing now mandatory for
daycares to operate and regular staff training credits being an important part of maintaining the
daycare's credibility on an annual basis, there is a lot more than basis meals, play equipment
and sleeping space that children must be given at a daycare center. We take a look at some of
these essential daycare factors that parents must look out for when choosing a daycare for the
1. Check for a known and licensed daycare facility that can prove the service quality it will
offer your child to ensure happiness, healthy environment and all-round development of
your precious child. Meet with the director of the daycare center and learn about his or
her credentials; check for background of staff and other volunteer/helper workers who
will be working closely with your child and the number of children they have enrolled in
the group to determine their capability and dedication to proper early childhood
development and education of children.
2. Find out about the kind of play equipment being used, the amount of space available to
the children for games and other activities, the hygiene and sanitation levels of the
daycare as well as the kind of meals being given to the children and whether there is
facility for any dietary supplements/changes for your child. Inform about allergies your
child may have and confirm the ability of the staff to deal with these or other medical
issues; daycare staff needs to be properly trained in administering First-aid and CPR.

3. Learn about the daycare center's emergency plan and fire safety program for children's
safety and health should any such situation arise; this is very important to establish
before admitting your child in a daycare that they have adequate knowledge and training
for dealing with all types of emergencies.
4. Do not hesitate to ask questions about the daycare facility program's child-care
attendants who will be ensuring the child adapts and learns to follow the center's routine
according to a set schedule and what disciplinary action is taken for children that do not
follow this; from learning structured activities to new rules and good habits, these
features must be provided by the service to your satisfaction. Check for potty training
techniques and measures followed by the daycare if your child is out of diapers or ready
for that as some centers do not allow for children before being properly toilet trained or
have extra fees for this or even changing nappies.
5. Check for safety of the daycare rooms - latches, window-bars, covered electrical outlets,
no broken furniture or jagged ends protruding from play equipment should be in sight in
a quality daycare. Proper play, sleep, learning and outdoor activity zone should exist in
the daycare, so don't miss out on these!
