Follow Your Instincts
You as a parent will know if something isn’t going right. Trust your instincts! A daycare may come well recommended or perhaps a particular caregiver but you may really be turned off about the place or individual. You know that it is important for your baby to have the best of nurturing care so if it doesn’t feel right, you need to look for other options. Don’t hesitate.
You need to be open to change. You don’t have to stay at a particular daycare if things are not working out. Remember, you can always move on. Although it is important that your baby have consistency, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make other arrangements. Sometimes things just don’t work out. Babies are notorious for being resilient and as long as their experience is positive, everything will work out.
Just remember that you are your baby’s essential caregiver and that provides the most consistent attention, love and support in his/her life. Between you and daycare, your baby will be healthy, happy and flourish.
