The American Academy of Pediatrics maintains that a child’s environment and social experience in their first three years of life is critical to their brain development and can have a decisive, long-lasting impact on their well-being and ability to learn.
For many parents, this is enough to make finding high-quality child care a top priority. According to a recent survey conducted by Easterseals and Yankelovich Partners, parents are so concerned with finding appropriate child care, 30 percent say they would pay 10 percent or more above the current rate to ensure the best possible care for their child. Most defined this level of care as a safe, child friendly atmosphere that features a warm, approachable, well-trained staff, and a low child-to-caregiver ratio.
