Selecting Child Care/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I give regular tours of our program and have been asked every question under the sun. We provide care for children from 4 months through preschool. I can answer questions such as: What should I look for in a quality program? What is developmentally appropriate practice? What should I ask my child-care provider? How do I handle disputes with my provider? These are just a few questions that come to mind. Feel free to ask anything related to child care and child care services.

Hi Molly,  It will take a while, but most likely the child will adjust. He just needs time. I know it might not seem like it, but the fact that the baby clings to you is usually a good sign. When his parents
