Children and Child Care

The Definition of Child Care:

When someone else other than a parent is taking care of a child(ren) in attempt to help make them grow physically, emotionally, socially, and mentally.

Today, child care is most commonly used by single parents who work or go to school during the day. A tight schedule does not enable him or her to provide for the child(ren) in a manner that he or she believes is appropriate. Many times the demands to financially support a family is obviously a priority in order to provide the essentials. The majority of the time, child care can benefit both the child and the parent!

Be Sure That Your Choice of Child Care Delivers the Following:

  • Good Health and Safety Needs
  • Good Activities to Enhance a Child's Social Behavior and Imagination
  • Promote the Strengthening of Parent-Child Relationships

The Qualities That Make-up a Good Child Care Facility:

  • A Loving Caregiver (the person who is in charge of your child)
  • He or she should have training and experience in caring for children
  • He or she should understand the wants and needs of both the children and the parents
  • He or she should love children
  • A Ideal Environment: (safety is the most important)
  • Plenty of space to play and interact both inside and outside
  • An area for napping and snack or lunch
  • An array of toys that are creative, fairly new, and safe
  • A variety of indoor and outdoor daily activities for children of all ages
