Are you looking for a Preschool or Day Care Center? Do you need infant or toddler care for your young child? Are you looking to find a good before and after school care program? Do you want a full or part time program?

If you need Day Care or a Before School or After School program for your infant; and are trying to find good infant and toddler care in Westchester, NY; find the best Day Care Center at List of Day Care Centers in Westchester, County.

Day Care Centers (Daycare)
Your baby's first year of life is critical to early development. Since each infant is a unique individual with unique needs, your Day Care Center (Daycare) should emphasize individual care for your infant. Lines of communication between you and your Day Care Center should be open. Parents and caregivers should develop a trusting relationship so that all of you are comfortable with the daily care given to your infant.

Once you've narrowed your list to a few Day Care Centers, it's a good idea to make preliminary visits to each school. Observe the programs in action. Are the children involved in their activities? Do the children and staff look happy and content with their surroundings? Take time and let yourself experience the school. Remember, this school will have an important influence in your child's development. Choose a Day Care Center that is right for your child. Review the following list of Day Care Center guidelines:

    Day Care and Childcare programs should conform to state regulations and satisfy minimal standards of health and safety. Ask the school's director to confirm that their school's program is up-to-date with its state license, and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

    What experience do the teachers have in early childhood education?

    Does the director of the Day Care Center or Childcare Center have experience as a teacher?

    What is the staff turnover?

    Does the ratio of adults to children comply with state requirements?

    Stop by during school hours and visit the schools that you are considering. A good school will welcome and even encourage your visit at any time.

    When selecting a Day Care Center for your infant, ask if a daily or weekly report is available for your child. A written report detailing your baby's daily activities is most important when your child is not yet talking.

      What does your child eat during the day?
      How long does your child nap?
      Did your child go outside in the fresh air today?
      Ask for a general status of your infant or young child at the end of each week.

    For toddlers and older children, also ask:

      Is food provided? If yes, is the food nutritious?

        Is an Organic Menu an option?
        Are vegetables and fruit served each day?
        Even if you send food ask - what does my child actually eat during the day?

      What activities is my child involved in during playtime?
      Does my child interact well with other children?
      If a child needs some quiet time; are "private" areas set-up for some private time?

These questions, and additional questions that you may have, should be addressed and conveyed to you at period intervals. If you need additional information, lines of communication should always be open.For example: A parent may want to know what their child ate each day in order to plan their child's meals for the rest of the day.

    Ask about Parent-Teacher conferences? Your child's Parent-Teacher conference will give you an opportunity to learn how your child is thriving in their Day Care or Childcare Center. Also, there may be specific areas of concern that you and your Day Carel Teacher need to discuss.

    Spend some time in the rooms in which your child will spend their time. Are the rooms sunny, uplifting, friendly, clean, and anything else that is important to you as a parent?

    Is a written statement available stating the Childcare or Day Care Center's goals and philosophy about Day Care?

      Is social development addressed? Ask how.
      Is emotional development addressed? Ask how.
      Is intellectual development addressed? Ask how.
      Is physical development addressed? Ask how.

    Does the program address spontaneous play and teacher-guided activity?

    Consider the outdoor play area.

      What is the teacher/child ratio for outdoor play?
      Is this a clean and green environment for your child? Be sure that pesticides are NOT used in your child's outdoor play area.
      Does the outdoor area look safe?
      Is there variety and stimulation opportunities in the outdoor equipment?
      Is there enough equipment to support your child's class size?

The first few years of your child's life are an amazing time, filled with discovery and enormous growth. It is not surprising that what your child learns early in life will influence their success later in school, in relationships, and in life.
