10 things to consider when choosing day care for your children When it comes to researching the different day care options available for your children in your area, there are a few approaches that you can take. Firstly, you can use the Childcare and Family Services Finder to find a list of nurseries that are located close to where you live, ask other parents that you know if they have any recommendations, or simply spend some time searching for them online.  Once you have got your list, it’s then a good idea to take a look at each nursery’s website to get a feel for what they offer, and then once you’ve narrowed your providers down it’s time to phone them and book a time to pop in for a visit. Taking the time to visit a nursery before making a decision about day care is so important – but while you’re there, what questions should you ask and what things to do you need to keep in mind to ensure it’s the right option for you and your child?

Does the nursery feel in a good state of repair? How secure does it feel? Do the children and staff appear happy? These are all things you should be taking note of.   2. Find out the number of places available When you start your
