GPS

Getting Parents Started is a checklist for families to start a dialogue with their existing or prospective childcare center. One of the toughest decisions a family can make is choosing quality childcare for their children. While some rely on the experiences of their neighbors and family, most parents need clear, objective information to compare one provider with another.

The purpose of GPS is to arm parents with a list of best practices and procedures, so families can ask questions of childcare providers as they find one that best suits their needs.

STRIVES FOR EXCELLENCE

SAFE AND SECURE

• What are the Staff: Child Ratios?

• Does the center follow the Safe Kids Upstate Child Safe Provider initiative?

• Is the center compliant with DSS, DHEC, and Fire Marshall requirements?

• Is the facility safe and secure?

• Is the center a member of a professional organization?

• Does the staff exhibit safe practices?

• Does the center participate in a voluntary quality improvement program rating system?

• Does the center comply with all DSS licensing requirements?

• Does the center use a childcare curriculum/philosophy?

SOUND AND STABLE

NURTURING AND ENGAGING

• Does the center meet Greenville Chamber of Commerce “Work Friendly” guidelines?

• Does the center support LiveWell guidelines? • Is the center nurturing?

• Does the center regularly communicate with families? • Does the center have an experienced staff?

• Are the classrooms nurturing?

WOW
