The first step in the process of choosing child care is to know what your options are. To begin, the age of your child will impact what kinds of care are available to you. Children are not required to attend school of any kind until they are age six, although most children benefit by at least attending a kindergarten program at age five.
Many families, though, require child care to meet their needs to balance family and work/school responsibilities. Your needs and those of your child will help determine the advantages and disadvantages of each option and will help you decide what is most appropriate for you and your family. You should look at different options and remember that the quality of care varies within each type of arrangement.

Artist Helen Meyrowitz will share her exhibit "Life Force" which reflects the complicated mix of emotions experienced as her husband Sidney suffered from and eventually succumbed to Alzheimer's disease. HMS Dean Jeffrey S. Flier will join her discussion, and describe current Alzheimer's research. A reception will follow in the Transit Gallery.
