Structure is also important because it helps children feel secure when they
know what is expected of them and of others. When evaluating a group child care
facility, make sure rules to govern children's behavior are established and
enforced. Written discipline policies should be available to parents and
displayed in the facility.

How is personal property handled? Are outside
toys allowed? If so, with what provisions? Does each child have a special place
to keep his or her belongings, such as a coat, hat, or extra change of
Does each child have his or her own cot or mat for taking
How does staff handle a child's physical aggression?
What are the guidelines for playing together? Are there fair
consequences when a child's behavior becomes disruptive?
notify you the same day if your child has behavior problems?
