Reports about serious injuries caused to children at daycare centres in different cities-Mumbai and Gurugram for example- have got me worried, because I leave my child in a daycare centre when I go to work. What kind of precautions should I take to ensure the safety of my child?
First and foremost, check their track record. Talk to parents who are leaving their children there and find out if they are happy with the service. Next, visit the centre and see the facilities, hygiene and the qualifications of those who are looking after the children. Is there enough number of them? How do they deal with the children? What kind of educational background do they have? How safety conscious are they? Has the centre done a background check on them? Make a list of questions and get satisfactory answers.
