After selecting a program, it's smart for families to stay involved in their child's care.
Make Unexpected Visits
Programs should welcome parent visits at any time, but keep in mind that certain times of the day are very busy.
Take Your Time
When dropping off or picking up your child, make time to occasionally stay a little longer.
Picking up your child at the same time every day is a great way to build a routine for your child. However, changing pick-up times occasionally allows you to see different aspects of your child’s day.
Helping with special events or field trips is a fun way to bond with your child and is also a chance to interact with your child’s caregivers.
Arrange a Conference
Setting up a meeting or phone conversation is a chance to talk about your child, ask questions, or express concerns.
Meet New People
Get to know child care professionals, staff, or volunteers who may be spending time with your child.
