When having a child, it can be stressful to decide whether or not to go back to work. By doing things such as checking if the daycare is licensed, their staff to child ratio, their security policies, background checks and even their emergency evacuation procedures, you can feel much more confident and comfortable with making the decision of putting your child in daycare and going back to work
Wise Owl Safety Takeaways:
- Deciding whether to go back to work after having a baby is always a tough decision. And, once you have made the decision, selecting the best daycare situation is even more stressful.
- There are state guidelines but if you are selecting a home daycare, these might not be followed.
- If it is a home daycare facility find out if any other relatives are living on premises or visiting at any time and be sure they have had complete background checks as well.
