Choosing
a Day-Care Center

What to look for, and how to
get help.

  • A good licensed day-care
    program does more than just babysit.
  • It encourages children to
    play and learn in a safe, healthy, nurturing environment.
  • It helps children gain social
    skills and prepare for school.
  • Call 311 or visit
    nyc.gov/health if you need help with day care.

The
Choosing a Day-Care Health Bulletin
