 I am wanting to look into them. Do you go and fill out paperwork before and show up as needed? How do I find a decent one...any webistes you recommend?

Any other advice/info would be welcome.

My son used to go to La Petite Academy and my husband and I scheduled just a walk thru at first to see how the facility was, I did this with several daycares within our area just to see which facility was best for us.

Call ahead for there hours and then just pop in to see them at a few different times.

Lunch, late afternoon and maybe just before they close.

Agree. All GOOD daycare centers have no problem with you dropping in to look over the place. However...remember that it is a bit difficult to properly give a walk thru in the middle of lunches or nap times..:) Dropping in is good, but you can also schedule a tour.  Usually you fill paperwork out the beforehand if you want, or when you drop off.  Then after you should have a file.
