-Family child care is a "home like" setting is the best alternative there is for working parents. It provides a small secure environment for children during the most important time of their development. Family child care offers a home away from home, providing children with "siblings" of all ages, to play, socialize, and learn from. My goal in providing quality child care for your child is to provide&
A safe environment
A nurturing environment
A learning environment& learning is not necessarily the ABC's, 123's, or even crawling, but is also the learning of values. The learning of honesty, respect, self-discipline, and more, the values of being; dependable, loving, sensitivity to others, kindness, friendliness and fairness are the values of giving.
A proper approach to discipline& Since children occasionally need discipline, it is important that you and I share a similar philosophy so that your child is not too confused as to where the boundaries are and what is expected of him/her. Children are taught which behaviors are inappropriate, and why, and given alternatives that are acceptable. In this way, the behavior is being changed, with out making the child feel bad or unloved. This helps develop their self-esteem, and teaches them how to handle difficult situations themselves in the future. I express my disapproval (without attaching character). I state my expectations and show your child how to make corrections. I give choices, and in extreme situations a child may be given a "time out"; because at times a child may be having trouble making choices of their own and they just may need a couple of minutes to calm down, and think about their choices.
And to foster unconditional love& this kind of love is very important to me because children should not grow up feeling that in order to be loved and cared for they must meet numerous conditions.
