As promised, these are the questions that we wanted to have answered from the day care places we saw (in no particular order):
- teacher/child ratio
- teacher turnover
- sick/vacation policy
- teacher certifications
- weather policy
- what we will need to bring
- typical day
- definition of sick and when they can return
- meds – who gives and their policy
- can we leave a carrier/stroller there
- toddler discipline
- can we drop in to check in or feed
I had great friends help me with the list of questions as I couldn’t have thought of half of these without the help of experienced parents. I think we’ve made a decision, but I realized when writing out this list that I forgot to ask about the sick/vacation policy at the last place.
I planned to do two workouts today, but I’m not making it to yoga tonight. I’ve been up since 3am and I’m not feeling so well.
Workout today – 20 minute elliptical, lifted weights
