There are questions everyone asks when it comes to their child and entering daycare. Chapter1 Daycare has put together some of our more commonly asked questions to hopefully help you find the answers you need.
If your question is not answered below, do not hesitate to reach out to us with your questions.
Sometimes parents just need some time to themselves! Whether you are a stay at home parent who needs a day or two to get some important things done without distractions or you’re a work from home parent who needs a few hours daily without having to get snacks, timeouts or to clean up, day care could be very beneficial for your child too. Daycare can be great socialization for your child, as well as a much needed break for everyone. Daycare is the stepping stone to future education, and Chapter1 Daycare is prepared to help both you and your child/ren transition easily.
