Once you find daycares in your area you should always interview prospective daycare providers before entrusting them with your children. You should always review the contract you enter into with your daycare provider, before signing it. Many daycare providers establish a contract with you to protect them from non-payment, or to enforce rules or payments due to late to pick-up of your child, and in some cases establish their paid vacation dates. Be mindful that you are hopefully establishing a long term relationship with your daycare provider. You may want to read our article on the top 10 things providers want parents to know.
Once you have a local daycare, you may want to attempt to establish a relationship with an alternate provider in case your provider is sick or on vacation. Having a back-up daycare lined up will save you from missing work and burning up your own vacation while they are unavailable. Consider family, friends, and neighbors as lower-cost temporary options for when your daycare is not available.
