How To Be A Better Dad: Finding the Perfect Daycare
SingleDad wants to help you understand Single Parent Dating from a man’s perspective. How To Date a Divorced Dad is the Q&A Single Parent Dating Advice section on SingleDad. Our topic this month is to learn how to find the best daycare for your child.
My son is supposed to begin daycare and I want to find the best one. He is my first and only child so I feel very protective and want to provide him the best. Any advice?
Beginning school will be such an exciting time for your son and maybe nerve wracking for you both! Today’s article can hopefully provide guidance and help aid in making the best decision.
It’s as simple as a google search. Google daycares around your area to start with, read the reviews, and pick your top 3. I suggest 3 because more than that can be overwhelming. Make a list of what stands out to you about these daycares, what you think could benefit your son and give them a call.
Usually when a child begins schooling there is an interview set up. Rather than the day care interviewing you and your child, interview them! Ask questions, voice concerns, and create scenarios to see what their problem solving would look like. It’s not about your child being accepted, but more to do with accepting the best fit for your child.
- Narrow It Down
Once you have reviewed, called, and interviewed the daycares narrow it down to the option you feel is best. Also see how your son is in each environment and allow him a say in this decision. Do not rush this process. It may take time to find the best, but with no rush or force you can feel confident your son is in the best hands. Good luck in your search and I hope your son has a wonderful experience!
