Choosing childcare for your child or children is one of the most important decisions that you make, and finding the kind of facility you want which has a vacancy or vacancies and is in the right place is not always easy.
It is strongly recommended that before registering your child with any childcare service, be it a facility or Childminder, that you visit the service, while children are present, to evaluate its quality. Be sure that the environment is caring, safe and friendly. Note that there’s a good range of daily activities provided and that the activities and resources take account of the children’s age, culture, background and any special needs.
