According to the Rand Corporation in the United States when you look for childcare focus your search in three areas – people, programme and place.
Here are a few of the things you should look for:
- What kind of training and education do the teachers have?
- Are the teachers and kids engaged in conversations?
- Can teachers tell you not only what they are doing, but why?
- Does the programme use a curriculum to guide learning?
- Does the programme welcome and involve families?
- Does the space have separate learning centres (reading, art, dramatic play, writing, etc.) and a well-equipped playground?
