Well how do you know a daycare center can be trusted with your child? How do you know you can trust a baby sitter or nanny? You do your homework, ask other parents, talk to who is running the program, go observe whoever is with the kids at the facility and see what they are doing. One of the potential bonuses with a gym that will look after kids is that they may have them more involved with games that are active and exercise oriented.
I would meet the caregiver (s) first. See how she or he interacts with the kids. Check the cleanliness. Look for how happy the kids are. Ask questions; how do they deal with a crying child, bathroom, snacks, tv (what shows/videos do they allow), security etc. You can see if they will let you stay with the child for a trial period before leaving him or her. There really is no perfect way to tell.
From the moment that your child makes its first steps, he or she is already bound to experience some tumbles. While you can’t keep your child from getting hurt, there are lots of ways that you can do to make him or her journey a bit more comfortable.
Here are some of the best techniques for treating wounds, stocking an emergency treatment pack, and calming your kid so you can soothe and heal any boo-boo fast.
