Dallas-Fort Worth baby care: when to start looking

One of the first questions that parents often ask about Dallas-Fort Worth baby care is when to start looking for care. There are a lot of factors that may impact this search, including your baby’s due date and how long your maternity or parental leave will be. The short answer is that it’s never too early to start looking at your options, especially since it may take a bit of time to secure a spot in the best Dallas-Fort Worth baby care centers. 

It's helpful to sort out your daycare options before your baby is born – you’ll have a lot of other things to focus on after the birth. You can start by researching options in the Dallas-Fort Worth area on the internet or asking acquaintances with children about their experiences. Be sure to ask your employer about any tuition reimbursement programs for employees that may help with the cost of daycare.

One of the biggest questions is whether you’ll want a daycare option that’s close to work or home. A center near your work makes it easy to drop by to see your baby during the day, while a center near your home may be easier if you work outside the office at times.

Once you have identified several options, it’s best to contact each center for a daycare tour where you can ask questions and observe their caregivers in action.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT BRIGHT HORIZONS?

How do I choose the right Dallas-Fort Worth baby care?

OPEN
First, consider the type of care you want to provide for your child: are you looking simply for a daycare where your child can be safely cared for, or would you prefer an early education center that is focused on nurturing your child’s development through structured learning and play? Next, you’ll likely want to look for a Dallas-Fort Worth baby care option that can accommodate your work schedule and your home life. You’ll want a place where you feel the teachers or caregivers are responsive, engaged professionals and where the environment feels safe, warm, and suitable for learning. Finally, you’ll want to be comfortable with the health and safety standards employed by the daycare provider. 

What age is best to start daycare?

OPEN
There’s no single age that’s best for starting daycare. Whether you start daycare when your baby is six weeks old – the earliest that most centers will accept an infant – or wait until the pre-kindergarten years, your child will benefit socially, emotionally, and educationally from spending time with other children and trusted caregivers.

What are the different types of baby care?

OPEN
Most baby care options in Dallas-Fort Worth fall into one of four categories: friends and neighbors who can watch your child during the day, a nanny or au pair who may also help with light housekeeping, a family daycare arrangement in a caregiver’s home, and a child care center with professional staff.
