  • How 'bout checking out facebook, myspace, or looking their names up on line. It's amazing what you can find out about people and their 'true' personalities.

  • If you are in Illinois, google the Daycare Action Council

  • first write down some questions... things that are important to you... interview the childcare provider, get references from parents of children in the class your child will be in... call the state license office and see if there are any issues with that provider... make sure that every staff member has a back ground check, make sure the classroom had open windows for parent viewing... if you are looking at a person, check their background, call former parents, see what their turnover is... this is all info you will need to make a good choice... if your child ever tells you something you don't think is right check it out ASAP... kids don't just come up with things very often... good look
