Tips For Choosing Family Child Care
and Relative Care

  • Look for Someone Who is Warm and Caring Toward Your Child
    Look at the way the provider approaches your child
    — is she/he caring? How does she/he treat children in the childcare daycare center who are crying
    — is the child comforted or criticized?


  • Look for Someone Who Wants to be a Provider.
    Ask why she/he became a provider and see how the provider seems to feel about this work
    — is it out of a commitment to children or merely a sense of obligation to the parents?


  • Look for Someone Who Seeks out Opportunities to Learn About Children.
    Ask if the provider has ever taken training about children or child care. Does she/he read things about children or watch programs about them on television?


  • Look for Someone Who Plans Experiences for Children.
    Ask the provider to describe a day caring for children and see if her/his approach has any prior planning.


  • Look for Someone Who is Attentive and Responsive.

  • Look at how the provider pays attention to children and talks to them.
    Does she/he ask questions that encourage them to express themselves, or engage them in conversation?


  • Look for Someone Who Follows Standard Business Practices.
    Does she/he ask you for a phone number where you can be reached during the day, make sure your child is immunized, and have a schedule for being paid?


  • Look for Someone Who Is Regulated.
    Providers who are regulated are more sensitive and responsive.
