Hi everyone I thought I will start a new thread related to child care . I am sure now almost all the kids will be going to childcare centres or to some care outside home atleast few days in a week or full time before they start school. It is a common practice in the western countries and is fast catching up in India also. I have been working in a daycare centre in Canada for a few years and I would like to share my experiences and knowledge with all the mothers. I also welcome suggestions and opinions from all. I amsure this will be a very useful discussion. To begin with I would like to ask the parents who like to put their kids under care outside their homes- What do you look in a day care centre before you decide upon a particular centre? Looking forward to your mails shubha.
