Communicating with Your Childcare Provider

Ideally, you and your care provider have an easy, supportive partnership.

The key is good communication. A high-quality provider will want to know how your baby is doing at home, just as you'll want to know how he's doing at childcare. Sharing this information will help you be an effective team for your baby.

Communicate openly and regularly:

  • At drop-off, let the provider know about your baby’s needs (whether physical or emotional) that day and share info on anything happening at home that may affect the baby in childcare.
  • At pick-up, ask how the day went and about any concerns the provider may have about your baby. 

Remember, that as the adults in this equation, you and the provider have individual opinions, needs and ways of doing things. Respect the provider’s hours of operation. Don’t hesitate to communicate about any issues related to your baby’s care that arise.

This message is not intended to provide individual medical advice. Always seek the advice of a physician or qualified healthcare provider for any questions you have about your health or medical condition, your breastfeeding issues and your infant's health. Never disregard, avoid or delay contacting a doctor or other qualified professional because of something you have read in our emails, webpages or other electronic communications.
