  • Definitely check out if there are pets in the home, how many children they are approved for, if they follow a meal plan, are they registered, licensed, or neither, are they smokers, do they go on field trips, daily lesson plans, etc. You probably don't want to put her in a daycare where they just sit and watch tv all day. Is the yard fenced in? Lots of important details concerning the safety of the kids. Do you care if it is an in home daycare or center? I always preferred centers because there are more than one caregivers. To spend time with her yourself, plan game night once a week and do fun things on the weekends. Good luck in school! I'm a student and have 3 kids- it's tough, but you will succeed!
