Fun Questions to Ask Your Toddler After Daycare

As a parent, you're eager to hear everything about your toddler's day at daycare. However, when you ask them how their day was, you may get a vague response like "good" or "fine." To get your toddler to open up and share more about their day, try asking some fun and engaging questions. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. What was your favorite thing you did today? Asking your toddler about their favorite activity or toy from the day can give you insight into what they enjoy doing most at daycare.

  2. Did you make any new friends today? This question can help your toddler practice social skills by encouraging them to talk about their interactions with other children.

  3. What did you have for snack/lunch? Asking about meals and snacks can help you ensure that your child is eating well at daycare and can also help you plan meals at home.

  4. Did you play outside today? Outdoor play is important for toddlers, so it's good to ask if they had a chance to get some fresh air and exercise.

  5. What did you learn today? Even if your child is too young to understand the concept of learning, this question can prompt them to talk about new experiences or skills they picked up during the day.

  6. Did you sing any songs or do any dances today? Many daycares incorporate music and movement into their daily routines, so asking about songs and dances can give you an idea of what your child is learning and enjoying.

  7. What did you do during circle time? Circle time is a structured activity where children often sing songs, listen to stories, and participate in group activities. Asking about circle time can help you get a sense of what your child is learning and how they're participating in group activities.

Remember, the goal is to get your child to talk and share about their day, so don't worry too much about getting specific answers. By asking fun and engaging questions, you can encourage your toddler to open up and share more about their experiences at daycare.
