School is over for many kids all across Northern Colorado, which means child care may be needed by parents. But what are the choices in the area?

It is one of the toughest decisions that a parent makes in life. You want to make sure that not only will the child care center be protective of your child, but also that they will keep learning throughout the season.

But you also want to make sure that the business that will be responsible for your child will have them at the forefront all throughout the day, so you have no worries while you are at work or out of town.

To assist you in knowing who is out there that you can trust, we've compiled a list of five child care centers located all throughout Northern Colorado that we believe you will trust all throughout the Summer.

Don't forget to do your own homework as well!  According to, here are seven questions you need to make sure you ask when you tour a childcare facility:

  • How Qualified is the Center?
  • How Safe is the Center?
  • What Happens if Your Child is Sick?
  • What is the Staff-to-Child Ratio?
  • What is the Curriculum and Parenting Style?
  • What is the Transportation Situation?
  • What is the Visitation Policy?

Ask those questions, and you'll be able to make the best assumption possible on what is best for your kids.

So check out these five and keep us updated on how your summer goes!
