    Childcare Near UEI’s Phoenix Campus

    One of the things that appeals to students considering a vocational or trade school like UEI is the flexibility and focused educational courses that allow students to go from the classroom to the workplace in a shorter amount of time. No matter how flexible your classes are, though, or how quickly you can earn your certificate or degree, if you have young children it’s important to find quality, reliable care for them during your classes so you can focus on what you need to. Here’s a list of preschools and childcare facilities near UEI’s Phoenix campus.

    Are there certain things I should look for when choosing a childcare facility?

    There are many factors to consider when choosing a Phoenix daycare. The most important thing is that both you and your child are comfortable with the staff and the facility. If you’re not comfortable with the people caring for your child, you won’t be able to focus on your studies while your child is there. Aside from being comfortable with the provider and facility, many parents have other preferences that need to be met. These include free time vs. structured time, age groups in attendance, whether or not they take children who aren’t potty trained, whether or not a program is faith-based, if the facility is a dedicated care facility or is part of the provider’s personal home, what kind of nutrition options are available, whether the staff is certified in CPR/First Aid, whether staff has cleared an FBI background check/TB clearance, and whether or not they offer drop-in services or extended hours.

    Another thing to consider when selecting a daycare in Phoenix is whether or not the facility accepts subsidized payments or assistance plans, because some students who qualify for financial aid may also qualify for childcare assistance. Reputable facilities that have the proper licensing and follow local, state, and federal regulations are happy to disclose all of this information and more to you, so if a provider refuses or doesn’t know, that can be a red flag.
