Find 17767 daycares and preschools. Daycares provide information on licensed infant and child care assistance, 24 hour and weekend day care centers, montessori, private, and public facilities.
Unless the owner of the Home Daycare has hired staff or has made arrangements for backup services, the parents must seek other accommodations in these instances. Daycare Centers, in contrast, usually have sufficient staffing capacity to cover absences due to sickness or vacation.What is the cost of Daycare?
The cost of Daycare varies dramatically by location and according to the service provider. However, some of the factors that influence the cost include adult to child ratios, the quality of programming, whether the provider is accredited as an early education program, whether the service remains open during inclement weather, and whether the provider expands services during school vacations. In some cases, government funding is available to subsidize costs for families.What are the Care-Givers' Credentials?
Many states require managers of Daycare Centers to have a degree or certification in early childhood development. Some Daycare Centers have internal policies requiring all staff members to have training in early childhood education. Home Daycare providers are typically not required to have any formal training. However, many do have certifications or a background in education or related fields.
