Comparison of Industry Regulations

Did you know that NOT all childcare providers are required by the state of Indiana to provide the same level of care to your child? Its true, from nutrition, to learning environment, to the staffing ratio of teachers to children, some child care providers simply don't have to adhere to any regulations. "Research shows that high quality early learning experiences prepare children for future success in school, work and life. Birth through age 3 is the most important time for growth of the human brain. A child's brain develops according to the child's experience which is why providing quality child care is so important" ( source Indiana Family & Social Services Administration). Why take a chance on your child's most important developmental years with substandard childcare, when you can offer your child so much more at an affordable price?
