This book gives lots of great, practical advice on finding the right childcare for your child at every age. "Will my child be comfortable, secure and fit in? What are the staff attitudes training and expectations? How much individual attention does my child need?" -- Dr. Auerbach's suggested questions to help you judge if a childcare situation is right for your child. (She's also known as "Dr. Toy.") The book covers all kinds of care options from care in your home, home care in someone else's home, and childcare centers.
