Read on to learn what to look for when starting your Boston baby care search.  

Things to Consider When Looking for Boston Infant Care 

  • Trained, Experienced, and Nurturing Caregivers: The best Boston baby care starts with caregivers you can trust. Are they trained and certified? Ask about their credentials and experience. If you visit the center, do they seem to enjoy working with infants? Look for happy, positive interactions. Would you feel good about leaving your baby in their care?  
  • Engaging Environment: Your baby’s classroom should be safe and full of sensory-rich materials that are easily accessible. Look for soft spaces for learning to sit up, crawl, stand, and walk, as well as small tables and chairs.  
  • Play Space: Make sure there’s a safe, open area devoted to playtime and movement.
