    if your child can talk , he/ she will talk about it. children talk about what interests them most. so just listen to them . if the child avoids talking about it or face turns sad ,or he/she is enthusiastic when you talk about the daycare

    Look for a lot of communication between caregiver and your child happy when coming home? Does he/she talk about other children there when at home...or tell what happens during the day?  OR...Does he/she not want to go in the morning?  Crying, nightmares, regressive behaviors like bedwetting/thumb sucking/twirling hair all are indicators of anxiety...Most likely your child will let you know if things are not right...just look for the signs.

    Most if not all nursery or child minding settings should have your child's development folder at hand. This will show you how your child is progressing in all key areas. Usually this is by written observations, or even pictures of your child doing activities in the nursery setting. The more information and evidence they have in the folder the better in my opinion. Also a record of the days activities of your child should be available to you for every session your child is at the nursery. As far as your child be happy in the nursery, then i think this will be made obvious from all this recorded data, and how your child reacts when at home. If you notice strange changes then question these with your child's key worker at the setting. Communication is vital!

    I am a daycare provider and am in the process of writing a book about that very subject.  Check out my website and find that answer and more.  You can find lots of information along with lots of my ideas for your child.

    My son is not old enough to tell me if he likes his daycare but I can tell by the way he acts.  In the mornings he is a little attached to me but then he warms up and goes to play.  When we pick him up some days he acts like he would rather stay than go home with me.  These actions make me know that he likes it there.  I also have great communication with his teachers as well as the director.  A good daycare will let the parents come in at any time during the day to observe their child, and believe me I have gone to see my son many times during my lunch hour.  They also call me if anything happens, for instance one time he fell and hit his head and they called to tell me about it.  They also have a report paper that is filled out every day with how many diapers were changed, what he ate, what he did for the day, his nap times, and his mood for the day.  I also have a good relationship with the director of the center and I can call her or email her.
