As the summer break gets closer, now is the time for parents to choose a safe place for children to go while they are at work.
Collaborative for Children’s QualiFind online database contains the information of more than 6,000 providers, including many agencies, private schools and summer camps. Parents may search for child care centers through zip code, city or address. Centers’ rankings are based on several criteria such as teacher tenure, teacher-to-child ratios and accreditation.
This service is free of charge and available by visting Collaborative for Children’s website.
When looking for child care, parents should visit multiple centers or homes, ask questions about the level of training of the caregivers and research whether the facility is accredited.
