As you consider a daycare provider for your child, you will likely have many questions related to safety, hours, meals, transportation, and what activities your child will be doing during the day.

You might be interested in the teacher-student ratio at the school, as well as any enrichment programs the provider offers. You may also have questions specific to Covid-19 protocols, such as “What are the mask-wearing requirements for staff and students?”, “How will the facility, learning materials, and toys be regularly cleaned and disinfected?”, and “What are your protocols if a staff member or student becomes ill with Covid-like symptoms or tests positive for the illness?”
