JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- When it comes to choosing a daycare your first step is to identify your priority: are you looking for something near your home? Do you want a center or a family in-home facility?
"You go to a center, it is 15-20 kids, one or two teachers. With me, it is six kids," said LaRonya McGlothin.
McGlothin is an family home care owner, she started her business ten years ago to be near her daughter. She said once you've set your priorities do your research.
"You should be looking for quality," she said.
Also, check to see if there's a curriculum or a program that stimulates the child's growth. The next step is to check the Florida Department of Children and families website: www.dcf.state.fl.us
