Some Truths about home daycare:

1) Most Families form tight bonds with their daycare providers.

2) Home daycare is different than center care. The children in home daycare are treated normally as part of the family and get more one-on-one care that cannot be provided in large programs and child care facilities.

3) The daycare provider’s day doesn’t end when the kids leave.

4) During business hours, a daycare provider rarely has time to complete all daycare tasks. Most providers are with children all day, with most working upwards of 10 hrs per day. They don’t have time to do supply runs, prepare all activities, and lesson plans, or prep meals when kids are running around. This is done normally outside of the daycare’s normal business hours e.g., wiping down toys and equipment, cleaning messes from the day, scrubbing down bathrooms, and doing dishes or laundry and much more. These tasks add up to hundreds of hours a year spent working when the kids aren’t present.

6) All children are a priority to the home daycare provider where smaller group sizes and multiple ages encourage quick learning.

7) Child care providers in the home daycare are more than just stay-at-home moms and Home daycare providers are not a parent’s employee. They run a business and are not just their babysitters.

Providing Child Care for infants and toddlers in various age groups is pretty common today in family home daycare’s.  Facts show that it can be very challenging to provide quality care when the right environment is not established or designed to care for mixed age groups of children.

Daycare Provider’s to succeed must have sound supervisory skills and methods to properly monitor the older children (toddlers) around younger children and infants in the daycare.  It’s important to have aged appropriate toys and learning manipulates for preschoolers as these may not be appropriate for younger infants or toddlers.  Safety is always key when selecting toys and learning devices for use in the daycare as there are so many things that can easily become a choking hazard.

Daycare Provider’s providing Infant & Toddler Child Care must carefully plan and provide the right learning environments and play areas in the daycare to safely operate and maintain 100% oversight during operating hours.  Providing Professional Infant & Toddler Child Care isn’t easy.

Today’s childcare centers and family daycare homes are required to have separate spaces that are designed or configured to meet the child care needs of  infants and toddlers.  In Child Care facilities most are set up with areas for infant and toddlers with children’s ages between the ages of 0-24 months of age.  Other areas provided are normally established for older toddlers i.e., three and four year old, pre-school age children, and school aged children attending elementary schools.

In daycare family homes, spaces may be different than a commercial environment that can offer a more warm close family personal space however, it’s important to still provide adequate areas and square footage in the home for sleeping, cribs, Knapp time mats, playpens, crawling spaces for free play, enough areas in the home for toddlers to master walking, and of course separate places for diapering, feeding, dressing, and other daycare activities.

In large and mid-sized child care centers, daycare providers providing special places designated just for infants and toddler care can be sumptuousness for the child and the caregiver.  However, in family daycare homes providing adequate spaces/areas caring for a mixed age group of children, can also be just as gorgeous.  Family daycare homes can be modified with personal charm when the daycare provider takes the time to properly plan to establish areas with everything required to meet the developmental needs of all infants and toddlers in a daycare.

At Pooh Bear’s Daycare… Infant & Toddler Child Care is OUR MISSION and What We Do.  We have taken the time to properly plan for quality care and use these components to establish professional, fun, loving, child group care:

  • ensuring manageable group sizes i.e., 3 to 1 for more one-on-one personal child care
  • providing a quality physical environment to stimulate rapid early childhood development and learning
  • establishing primary care giving duties to accomplish daily activities
  • fostering nurturing child care principals for children
  • promoting growth and development continuity to all children
  • establishing and meeting the personal needs of the children

As you can see from above, there are a lot of factors that contribute to providing professional and quality care for all children.  Call Pooh Bear’s Daycare Today, ph:  571.217.8694, that’s our mission and What WE DO!

With Success in Mind,
