You're headed back to work or school and are looking for daycare centers in your area. But you're not sure where to begin. You could google "daycares in my town," but that might not help you in the way that you're looking for. A general list just won't do. You want to start checking out child care centers that meet your specific needs. With that in mind, you actually need to know what your individual needs are before you start narrowing your search criteria.
