Our Suggestions On Daycare
If you are new the area, here are some suggestions to get started on finding the right daycare for your child.

  1. Read your employment contract to know your yearly income, then calculate your monthly budget, after taxes.
  2. Identify the type of care your child needs (i.e. daycare, preschools, nanny, au-pair, babysitter, etc.).
  3. Find the care-of-interest within your price range. If there is a waitlist, get on the list.
  4. If you do not hear back from your care-of-interest, consider a temporary alternative until your child is enrolled.
  5. Continue on to your training!
