The best way to find a good day care center for kids is to ask the parents who had an experience of the day nursery.
Listen to every positive and negative comment about a particular center and follow your instincts.
You need to check if the day care centers are registered and have transparent and well-established policies. Their staff must be professional, dedicated and qualified to keep the atmosphere clean and safe for the kids. They must provide an age-specific and child-centric curriculum.
A good creche also has a strict policy for illness and minor accidents. They must be ready with first aid whenever required. Their staff must have basic knowledge about the use of first aid. They have to take necessary steps in the emergency situation.
A good creche will include the following:
1. Toys and Books for different age groups
2. Drawings and Paintings of animals or cartoon characters on the wall.
3. Educational videos for different age groups.
Good day care center will allow and encourage kids to do the following activities:

2. Have 15 minutes of breaks
3. Playing and interacting with other kids in a group
4. Eat Breakfast/Lunch
5. Taking naps for 15 minutes
