Daycare centers are usually very loving, vibrant places where parents can feel good dropping their kids off each morning. But what if -- even though you’re happy with yours in general -- you’re getting some bad vibes about what’s going on there? Whether you’re concerned about its cleanliness or you think your kid is eating too much junk food there, here’s what you should do.
Identify the staffer you connect most with
Naturally, having a talk with a teacher or other staff member is the fastest, most direct way to express your concerns and get immediate feedback. Find a staffer you connect with -- even if it’s a co-teacher or part-timer. If feel you’re on the same wavelength with anyone at the center, that’s worth its weight in gold, since it will be easier to effectively communicate with the center through that person.
