Another Parenting Tip:

When you look around the child care classroom, you should see how teachers are following the posted Daily Schedule and Lesson Plans. Do they go outside every morning and afternoon? Is this weeks artwork displayed? Does the Library include the books they’re reading this week? Are the Science, Math, and Dramatic Play areas set up so children can carry out the activities identified in the Plan?

And: Are babies usually on the floor interacting with toys, teachers, and each other?

You gave me encouragement at just the right time to help my son and daughter-in-law do what’s best for their child. Now my granddaughter is at the head of her class! Parents don’t get the training. It’s probably out there, but it’s hard to find the right answer to move forward. All parents have different problems, and want to know how to do what’s best for their child, their treasure! ~Thelma Houston, Grandparent and Kangen™ Water Distributor
