What to look for when you are looking for child care

  • Only licensed child care is checked regularly to make sure that it is safe and healthy for children.
  • Visit the child care programme. Look for clean, bright, comfortable spaces where your child will be happy and supported. You should feel welcome too.
  • Look for a child care programme that uses a planned curriculum approach. This makes the care and learning activities in a programme better for children.
  • Look for a child care programme that also cares for children with special needs. Inclusive child care is good for all children.
