Quality Child Care

Good child care is much more than babysitting. It is gently guiding children as they learn about themselves and the world around them. It is helping them master the skills and lessons of everyday life. It is nurturing their fast-growing minds and carefully handling the challenges of behavior, sickness and relationships—so they will grow into healthy, responsible and productive adults. As parents, you will select your child care arrangement. But we can help.

Here you’ll find information on different kinds of child care and hints on what to look for to find a quality child care center or family child care home—plus child care checklists, tax credits and other important information. And you can call us direct for personal assistance with your child care search. Remember, quality child care lasts a lifetime! Look for the good quality ribbons throughout this book for special hints on locating quality child care.
