 Call and Ask Questions
Ask questions about the academic background and experience of the caregivers. How do caregivers set limits or teach right from wrong? Find out how many children are in a group with an adult (the younger the child the smaller the number per adult; for example, infants under one year require 1 adult to no more than 3 babies). What kinds of activities and materials are available? What is the daily routine? How much time are the children outside? What is served for snack? For an all-day program, ask where the children rest and for how long? Visit each program that you are considering and when you have found one that you like, visit that one again unexpectedly!!

Call the New Hampshire Bureau for Child Care Standards and Licensing at 603-271-9025 to ask if there have been any complaints about the program that you chose. Trust your feelings about a fit between a program and your child. For assistance with paying for childcare,  or for scholarships, contact your local Division of Family Assistance at         603-357-3510  or NHEasy.gov.
