As summer approaches, more parents will be dropping off their kids at day care or summer camps. They need to be extra careful to make sure theyre putting their kids in good hands. The state recommends parents do their homework by jumping online. You can go to the states website and find out how many violations each child care center has recorded in the last couple of years. That website is www.txchildcaresearch.org While the internet is valuable, you should also just stop by child care centers unexpectedly. Watch how the staff interact with the children. Dont be afraid to ask questions.
