5 Must-Ask Questions When Touring Childcare Facilities

Every parent wants the best for their child, especially when it comes to childcare. With the upcoming school year right around the corner, finding the perfect home away from home for your child will be one of the most important decisions you make. At The Malvern School, we’re committed to helping you find the right fit for your family.

While touring schools, it’s important to know not only what to look for, but the right questions to ask. We put together five questions to ask as you tour childcare centers, daycares, and preschools. These must-ask questions will ensure you have all of the information you need to make a safe and sound decision to ensure your child is in the best hands!


  1. Strong Curriculum– “Do you follow an accredited organization’s standards for early childhood education and development?”
  2. Health & Safety– “What processes and procedures do you have in place to ensure a safe environment and reduce the risk of illness in your schools?”
  3. Parent Communication– “How will I receive parent communication about my child and the daily classroom activities he/she participates in?”
  4. Child Development– “How will you assess the development of my child? Will you provide regular reports on milestones and provide recommendations on how to reach those milestones?”
  5. Professional and Friendly Environment– “What criteria do you look for when hiring staff at your center?”
