How to Choose a Childcare Provider: Covenant Schools Child Care, Albuquerque

Choosing who will be part of your child-rearing team is no easy task. The premier child care Albuquerque loves, Covenant Schools, is here to make your transition a little easier with these top tips for choosing the right fit for your family.

Research Your Options

This includes online research, reading reviews, getting referrals from friends or family, seeing what social media has to say, and checking with your child’s pediatrician. Every family’s needs are unique, so not every option for child care Albuquerque has will be a good fit for you. Compile a list of three potential candidates and dig a little deeper.

Conduct Interviews with Centers and Staff

Screen your candidates by chatting with them either over the phone or in person. Prepare a list of questions in advance to help guide the conversation. Ask about:


  • Center licensing
  • Professional qualifications
  • Activity and center schedules
  • Background checks
  • Injury and illness procedures
  • How behavioral concerns are addressed
  • Education plans

Observe Staff Engagement

Before committing to a child care center, spend some time on-site during class times. See how the staff engages with the children. Are they down on the floor, engaged at eye level? How do they handle tantrums? Is there a general air of joy and kindness?

Follow Your Instincts

No one knows your child as you do. No one else will have the same care for your family’s best interests as you will. Take a studied approach to selecting a child care provider. But also recognize that sometimes, when you know, you know!
