Additional Information on Child Care Providers

Providers and their homes are different and unique just as families are. Please arrange an interview with a potential FCC provider to assure compatibility.

The provider will guide, teach and nurture your child.Items to check for and questions to ask when interviewing a potential provider:

  • Is the home kept clean?
  • Is there room for children to play indoors and outdoors?
  • Is there a place for naps?
  • Is the home free of safety hazards?
  • Does the provider seem to know a lot about child development and child care?
  • Does the provider seem to truly like children and are they patient with the children?
  • What training has the provider had?
  • Complete a written contract regarding fees and policies.
  • Provide proof of immunizations.
  • Visit your FCC home anytime during the day. Check to see what kind of care is being provided.
  • Discuss your goals and the provider’s goals for your child and work together to accomplish those goals.
  • Keep the provider informed about the health of your child. If your child is ill and will not be going to the FCC home, notify the provider as soon as possible.
  • Pay for fees on time; the provider deserves your consideration.
