  10. Does your program have any special features?
  11. What are your arrangements for when you are ill or on holiday, or in case of emergency?
  12. Do you encourage parent involvement? Can I visit whenever I wish?
  13. Who supplies diapers, blankets, meals, or snacks?
  14. Do you accept children who require extra support? Why/Why not?
  15. Are you willing to adapt your program to meet the needs of a child who requires extra support?
