Information for Parents about White Plains NY Child Care

Selecting Local White Plains Child Care Centers, Preschools and Daycare

Providers of child care in White Plains NY encourage you to visit the preschool by scheduling a tour. Prepare a list of questions ahead of time and include items such as: philosophy and learning approach, classroom size, hours and schedules, admissions process, meals provided, parent participation requirements, daycare program information, fees and tuition. If the child care in White Plains NY already has a 2-page profile with ChildCare Smiles then you will be able to review and print most of this information ahead of time, including preschool photos. This will then enable you to focus on the visual aspects, interactions with the Director and teachers, and general feelings about the daycare when you visit. An important consideration when visiting a White Plains child care facility is to ensure that your child will be receiving a well-organized and challenging curriculum, a warm, safe and clean environment, and teachers who are experienced and ideally have long tenure. When you visit a White Plains child care center don't forget to take your child with you and observe how he/she reacts in this new environment. Also, take the time to observe how the other children interact with each other and the teachers. A happy school is a healthy school for daycare children and staff at White Plains daycare centers. Daycare facilities are noisy, high energy places and a typical day requires a child to be at 100% capacity. When children are not feeling well and struggling to keep up, the school environment can be overwhelming for them. For this reason, centers that provide child care in White Plains NY will have guidelines for parents to follow in determining if a child is too sick for school. In the event that your child becomes ill, White Plains childcare centers will require you or your designated emergency contacts to pick up your child within a specified time period e.g. 30 minutes. Although daycare centers in White Plains NY recognize that picking up your child during the day may create a hardship, it is in the child's best interest. White Plains daycare centers also recommend that if your child is ill, then please keep them home until they are no longer contagious and are able to actively participate at school, inside and out.
