Owlet started childcare last week and on her first day I may or may not have cried… but she was so good! I stuck around for about three hours because I was nervous and really expected her to be clingy and terrified. Turns out I was the one terrified and she was just ready to go! From the moment we got there she was so interested in what was going on and who was around, it didn’t take long for her to start running around with the other toddlers. The daycare we chose has been in business for twenty some odd years so the fact alone made me feel a little more at ease.
So how did we choose a daycare? What were our requirements? Well, you might be surprised to find that we didn’t have very many “must-haves”. Here’s the list:
In the state of CA any person who watches more than one families kid(s) is considered an in-home childcare. So you have to have a license number and business license to lawfully run one. Obviously, this home childcare has been in business for 20+ years, they have all the proper paperwork, I know, I checked.
