Something else you might expect to run into is breed restrictions. Is it necessary? That depends on the facility and what they feel comfortable handling. Pit bulls for example are often a source of debate. Some places may not take them at all while others handle them on a case by case basis. It’s something good to check on.
The last thing you need to keep in mind is that if your dog does attend daycare, there is the possibility for injury and/or illness. Just like kids in daycare, tiffs happen and participants get sick. Same goes with the dog park. Dogs will be dogs after all but don't let that deter you if you feel your pooch could benefit from daycare.
Just make sure to check in with the daycare about how your dog is doing. There's a difference between coming home exhausted from stress or from play so make sure to keep an eye on your pet. While doggie daycare may not be the best option for every dog, it can be a godsend for some.
