Childcare/Babysitters – Tips for Dads Choosing and Using Child Care

Child care is more than a service that allows parents to
work. It is a world that is bound to affect a child’s development in many ways –
physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially.

According to the U.S Department of
Health and Human Services, finding quality child care that is affordable can be challenging. Many
parents need inexpensive or cost-free day care where they know their children are safe and are being
helped to grow and develop. Parents can now contact their local social service agency (listed in the

Start and other community programs.

The National Women’s Health Information Center (NWHIC)
also recommends taking the following steps to choosing quality child care.
