If you are getting ready to go back to work and looking for child care in Lathlain, you are not alone. If you feel a bit overwhelmed, you’re not alone there, either. When the mother of a baby or young child goes back to work, it’s a considerable adjustment for both the mother and the child. Here are some tips on how to prepare and make it go smoothly.
Start Preparing Early
Start thinking about what you need to do before you actually need to do it. What days and hours will you require child care? Do you want your child care centre to be close to home or close to work?
Word of Mouth
Ask friends and relatives about their experiences with child care. Ask them if they are happy with their current facilities and ask them why or why not.
Start doing research on childcare centres in your area or on the way to work. Decide what kind of child care centre or situation is best for you.
If you are interested in a child care centre, visit it. Ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask whatever you need to know. Talk to the staff. How do they treat you? How are they treating the children when their parents aren’t there? Do they properly “vet” their staff during the hiring process?
Most child care centres around Lathlain or anywhere in the Perth area will have a waiting list. If you want your child to be taken care of, get on the list early. That way, you won’t have to scramble around for childcare at the last minute.
