In these times of recession, many people are going back to school to retrain for new careers. Many of them are young adults with young children who must go to daycare while their mother or father attends classes.
If this is your situation, here are some tips for finding a quality Early Childhood center in Guildford or nursery to help you have the peace of mind you need to focus on your studies.
Use the Internet to find a center near your home or school. For a daycare to work, it must first be convenient for where you live or learn. Use an online program such as Google Maps to find centers (keyword: "Nursery") near your home address and the location of the school. Create a candidate list.
Ask for references. Nothing beats the first-hand experience. If your friends use the local daycare, ask for recommendations based on the list you've compiled. You can also ask the administrators of the school you attend for recommendations. They probably have a lot of students in your situation.
Check out the centers' backgrounds and customer feedback. Once again, the internet can be an invaluable tool here. A simple Google search of the name of each center should yield a lot of information about the facility, including both positive and negative comments from people who have had children there. If a hub produces a lot of negative comments, you may want to remove it from your list.
Personally inspect all other facilities. Take a tour of your top candidates and do your research:
Center activities. Look around you and see what happens during your visit. Are the children involved in supervised activities or are they alone? Do the children seem well behaved or unruly? Do some kids get all the attention while others get ignored?
Maintenance and cleaning. Does the center appear to be well maintained? Check the bathrooms. They are always the best sign of the overall cleanliness of any facility.
