Well, as a former mom who had girls in both, do a thorough inspection of the place, including bathrooms. One of our facilities here was the source of a major e-coli outbreak this past year. If the owners are doing a great job, the place should look pretty clean, including the bathrooms. Also, find out what the teachers credentials are, including how long they have taught, what they have taught, what their eduction is, and what achievements they have. Talk to the community about the other kids who have attended there. The owners should be more than happy to tell you everything and not seem to have an attitude.
