You should never leave your child under a day care program's care without having full information on their capabilities. There are specific questions you should ask when considering a program that offers day care or after school programs to help you make a wise decision on whether to use their services or not. You need to know a lot about the caregiver character, the facility setup, their rules, and principles.

After you get the solutions to those questions then now you will have a clear base to make a decision. A child care center should be a place where the child is looking forward to going every day. If you notice some resistance in your kid to go to the institution, there might be something wrong, and a deeper inquiry should be made.
However, do not rush to decisions based only on that fact as children also have a tendency to cry or want to be always around their parents. The best way to know how exactly your child feels about the child care is calling to enquire how the child is relating with other children.
In case there is a major issue which cannot be explained, then your next option is just to look for another child care facility. Be prepared as you explore your child care options with a comprehensive list of questions you should ask when considering a child care program.
