The phone call
It is recommended to start your search by phoning the childcare services that interest you and asking certain basic questions:
- Is the childcare service recognized by the Ministère de la Famille?
- What are the hours of childcare?
- In what period of the year is the childcare service closed?
- To how many children does the childcare service provide childcare?
- In the case of a home childcare provider, what are the ages of the other children who attend?
- Does the childcare service offer subsidized spaces?
- If the spaces are not subsidized, what is the daily childcare rate?
- Ask for an idea of the meals and snacks served to the children.
- Ask for examples of activities offered to the children.
