Considerations and Readiness for Daycare

Placing your toddler in daycare may be the only option if family members or a trusted friend is not available. At Horizon Education Centers, we take the stress out of finding a caring daycare center.

If you're unsure whether or not daycare is the right place for your toddler, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your child going to benefit by being in a daycare environment interacting with other children?
  • Will your child be happy learning new things?
  • Does your child like to share and play with others?
  • Will socializing with other children be a good thing?
