How to find a childcare centre. Our schedules are getting busier than ever before so be sure to put some consideration when selecting the potential location of the childcare centre, ensuring that is convenient for you. Is the centre close to home or work? For example how will the location affect your morning or afternoon routine? Have you accounted for travel and will you be able to get to the centre in time to pick up your child? As trivial as the last point may seem, it’s important to consider this as many services charge hefty penalties for late pick-ups.
