Issues and Concerns
Having someone care for your child can be downright stressful, and more so if you haven't found a caregiver or center you are comfortable with. Not all parent-provider partnerships are a successful match. Many relationships succeed, others fail, and quality of services, unrealistic expectations, costs, style of care, supervision, and poor communications can be among the reasons why.
