Finding the right Raleigh child care center for your child is important. You need to feel comfortable with the center’s staff, environment, and curriculum. Touring a child care center is the best way to make sure your child will be in good, safe hands.
Here are some tips on touring child care centers to help you find the best fit for the both of you.
Try A Virtual Day Care Tour
Learn more about the preschools that you are considering without ever leaving your home by taking a virtual tour on their website. We offer a child care virtual tour on our website where you’ll see a 360-degree view of our preschool rooms, toddler room and nursery.
You can also check their Facebook page to see their current events, crafts, and trips. We frequently post about our activities, field trips, and more on our Facebook page to let friends and family know what we’re up to.
Do Your Research
Conduct research on the child care center you are considering, such as:
- Reviewing the frequently asked questions and policies on their website.
- Looking up their rating from the North Carolina Division of Child Development. Primary Beginnings is a 5-Star child care center – the highest they give.
- Checking out their Better Business Bureau rating, and see if any customer complaints have been logged and why.
- Making a list of questions that are important for you to review, such as the ones on our Infant Child Care Checklist.
Schedule Your Child Care Tour
The final step is to tour a Raleigh child care center in person. Schedule an appointment with the staff, making sure you have plenty of time to visit without feeling rushed. Bring your preschooler along to your top choices to see how they interact with the teachers, environment, and other children.
