Call the director of any centers you're considering and make an appointment to visit, so that someone will be available to answer your questions and give you information. You might ask for a brochure or parent handbook before you visit so that you can get some of the answers you need before you go.
Read over the following Questions sheet before your visit so you can think about the things that are particularly important to you and your child. Add a few notes on anything you really want to check out. Make a copy of the Questions for each center you'll be visiting and take a copy with you when you visit. You probably won't have time to write everything down while you're at the center, but make some quick notes and look them over soon after you come home, when the answers are still fresh in your mind.
