Wyoming Day Care Centers – Steps to Selecting a Good Child Care

By David Wolf, Attorney

The Wyoming Department of Family Services regulates and licenses day care centers throughout the State. The Division of Early Childhood publishes a helpful checklist for parents to use when selecting a day care center. The checklist is also helpful for evaluating a day care center that a parent is already using for a child. Parents should educate and inform themselves about a day care center. The checklist provides the following advice:

1. Get organized.
2. Conduct a telephone interview of the owner / administrator of the day care center;
3. Visit the day care center. See for yourself what the facility is like and how it is operated;
4. Check references. Get references from other parents who have children at the center.
5. Make a decision.

I recommend that Wyoming parents and other parents for that matter review and print out the check list located at Wyoming – Five Steps to Selecting Good Child Care.
