Full Time Childcare Programs

Selecting care for your child is one of the most nerve-wracking decisions we make as moms. Any licensed childcare facility must meet minimum requirements set by DHR. Look for centers that exceed these standards when possible and evaluate your overall comfort with the center and its programs.  Read the Top Ten Questions to Ask a Childcare Center.

Also, here is a growing list of childcare options during school breaks.

I'm a work-at-home mom so I needed a MDO program that started earlier than 9am.  She is very flexible with what times you need for daycare/MDO.  Also, included every two weeks is either a Friday date night (7-11pm) or a shopping Saturday (9am-1pm). I haven't seen ANY preschool that offers that."
