Hi Mamas,

I would appreciate it if anyone can provide me with a link or with some suggestions on what to ask day care providers.

Dd is going to be starting day care soon (she's nearly 15 mo.s).

Right now the main questions I have:

1. Dd is on a vegetarian diet. Will you feed her the food I bring in for her and make sure she does not eat any other food?

2. How much time to the kids spend outdoors?

3. What is the adult-kid ratio?

4. When/how do you put kids down for nap time? (Dd has never been in a crib before, and I'm worried about this one.) What if they are having a hard time falling asleep? What if they are crying?

5. Videos/television?

6. qualifications of providers?

7. Any complaints in the last year? Any voilations cited?

8. Turnover rate of care providers?

any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!

Thanks,

your full-time graduate student with internship friend, Michelle

there was a thread a while ago on this.

Here http://205.214.82.233/discussions/sh...774#post457774 is my post on the thread where I recommended a book that was really helpful to me. Also, lots and lots of others on the thread had good ideas.
