Choosing Quality Child Care in Maine
Choosing child care is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. A good child care setting can have a positive impact on the development of your child. Remember, it is up to you to choose care for your child. When you have found a program that meets your family's and child's needs, stay involved, ask questions, and talk with your care giver each day about your child.
