If you're an older mum-to-be and this will be your first baby, here are some suggestions to remember. Consider getting at-home childcare help until your baby is ready for daycare Even if you won't be working for many months after having your baby (or won't be returning to work at all), you should still consider hiring either an au pair or a nanny to help you out during the first year or so, before your child is old enough for daycare.
A good childcare centre is not just a place to leave your toddler as you go to work, but one that can help foster the development of your child, help them develop better, and help prepare any challenges that lie ahead by instilling the right values and principles. This is why you should only settle for a childcare centre with a good reputation, licensed caregivers, and overall, trust your instinct as a parent.

If you've found a centre that offers an outstanding quality of care, you may not want to turn it down simply because meat is off the menu. Of course, that won't stop you from feeling dubious.

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your child's kindergarten learning program.
