So . . . in just a few more months I'll be back in school so my baby boy will start going to daycare :(. I want to find a really good fit for him. I'm planning on spending days with him at the daycare before I am in classes again so that I can make sure it's a place where he is comfortable as well as stimulated. The problem is, I don't really know what to look for. Daycares, if they're good, can be WONDERFULL places for kids - I am still in touch with my daycare teacher from when I was little (a former teen mama, btw), but I also know that daycares can be awfull if they are not good. I'm still looking into getting vouchers, so I don't know how much cost will play into this.
What do you look for in daycares? What are some "red flags" for you when you visit them? Any advice?
