How do I find the right daycare for my disabled child?

Daycare and the Disabled Child

When choosing a mainstream daycare situation for your child, you should ensure that all staff are trained in special education and are willing to learn about your child and her particular disability. Look around at all areas of the centre and see if they are all accessible and usable to your child. Questions to ask yourself include: Will your child be able to use the outdoor play area (many centres have sandy play areas which are not wheelchair friendly), are the walkways wide enough for your child to get through? Do they have appropriate toilet facilities?
