WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN VISITING CHILD CARE

Use our checklist to help determine if an early childhood service is high quality


Do you feel welcome within the service?


Do the educators take time to speak with you and answer your questions?


Do educators get to your child's level and talk with them?


Are the educators engaging with other children in a warm manner?


Is the service clean and hygienic?


Is the outdoor environment inviting?


Is there child sized equipment and resources available to children?


Are the educators happy to discuss what they're doing to improve the quality of the service? Ask them about their quality rating.
