In the process of finding proper daycare for your kids? Many other parents share your dilemma – and it's not a matter to be taken lightly. Here are some things to consider.

Take action:

If a person is looking after six or more children, he/she should be registered and must have a certain level of training – inquire about this. The facility should also be up to scratch. There should be: one commode/potty for every five children; one toilet for every 20 children; one hand basin for every 20 children; at least two square metres per baby and one-and-a-half square metres per toddler; a kitchen that's separate from the playing area; and a sickbay. Go with your child to a few places and see where he/she feels most at home.
