You may want to visit several centers before you decide. Get to know 10 commonly used terms when shopping for a caregiver or daycare facility.

    If you need your child looked after and cared for while you are away, consider working with a day care center. These centers provide care for young babies, toddlers, and preschool boys and girls and often boast offering educational programs with fun activities for children included. Day care professionals offer all-day, half-day, and after-school care services with components integrated in that include playtime, arts and crafts, music lessons, reading skills, and group activities. You can find a day care center on its own or as part of a church or school entity. Care options include all-day, half-day, and after school time frames with you picking the one that suits you the best. You might even find some day care centers offer weekend care. Be sure to visit the nearest day care center facility in your area and ask the questions you need answers to, such as how much the enrollment fees are, the types of education programs they offer, their involvement within the community, and any licenses the instructors may hold.
