Resources for Parents

All young children need quality care no matter where they are; at home with a parent, being cared for by a relative, or in a child care setting. Quality care is care that promotes the optimal growth and development of children in a safe and healthy nurturing environment.

What to Look for in Quality Child Care

  • Health
  • Safety
  • A good physical environment
  • Caring adult interactions
  • Activities to promote healthy growth and development
  • Well trained caregivers
  • Optimal adult-to-child ratios
