Day Care for Lea
Mae and Doug are the proud parents of a new baby girl named Lea. Mae and Doug both have full-time jobs. They will need day care for Lea. They would like Lea to be in a home day care setting.
What are they looking for in a day care provider? “I want someone who loves kids and is patient. Plus, the person should keep Lea on the same schedule that she has at home,” Mae says.
“I also think about safety,” Doug replies. “Is the home clean? Are there any pets? Is there a fence around the yard? How many kids are there at one time?”
Mae says, “I would like licensed day care for Lea.” Licensed day care homes have rules to follow. It would be a safe place for her. There are food guidelines, and a representative from a state agency visits and checks these sites.
“Let’s make a list of our ideas,” Doug suggests. “I think this is a good start. We now have questions we can ask when we begin to call about day care for Lea.”
