The Westport Library recently hosted a series of talks given by local pediatricians on topics of interest to parents in the community.
On April 2nd Dr. Laura Marks gave a presentation about childcare options. Speaking from her own experience as a pediatrician and mother, Dr. Marks discussed what to look for when considering various child care options, including hiring a nanny and enrolling a child in home or center based day care.
Topics included safety concerns, cost considerations, and evaluating if the child care options parents’ are considering are supportive of a their child’s age and stage of development. Parents had the opportunity to ask questions and a lively discussion followed – ensuring that your child has the best possible environment when you are not there is vital to parents’ peace of mind and their infant or young child’s well being.
