Matching Your Child to Type of Care

Matching Your Child to Type of Care
 
Once you have read about the different types of regulated and unregulated care available you may still be wondering how this applies to finding care for your child.
 
Infants/Toddlers: In the Rogue Valley there are a limited number of centers that will accept un-potty trained children. Most very young children are cared for in a family home setting by family, friends or a professional provider. If you would like your child to be in a center setting, and are able to plan ahead, you will be very wise to go through the process of finding a center you like and get on their waiting list. If you are eligible, Early Head Start is another program option for this age group. Do consider whether a smaller or larger setting is right for your child and what kind of early education experience is being offered.
 
Preschoolers: These are children generally 3-5 years of age, not yet in first grade. There are many options for this group, preschools, centers and family homes and all possibilities. Again, consider what size group is best for your child’s temperament and what the school readiness activities are. Again Head Start may be an option if you are eligible.
 
School-Agers: Afterschool programs may serve you well, but you may also consider family settings or centers for this group. Some family home providers do not care for children over 9 or 10 because they are harder to keep entertained alongside the younger children.
 
Special Needs: It is a good start to be aware of your rights under the American’s with Disabilities Act. A good next step is to locate a setting that is a match to your child’s needs. Consider the size of the setting, the adult to child ratio, and the expertise of the provider or staff. Click on “Inclusive Child Care Project” to determine if this program may be of benefit to you.
