A Positive Caregiver Helps Children Prosper
Parents seeking child care are often overwhelmed when it comes to selecting the right provider. They waffle between different options and often ask themselves, “How do we know if we made the right choice?”
Finding and choosing quality child care is one of the most important decisions a parent will make, but it’s also the one that can give them peace of mind when they head out to work for the day.
That’s why choosing a positive caregiver is important. So, how can you recognize a positive caregiver? Someone who will help your child prosper as they grow? To help parents better understand how to identify a positive caregiver, First 5 LA has created a checklist parents can use when interviewing potential caregivers.
Some key points to recognizing a positive caregiver:
1. Has an inspiring attitude
2. Tends for your child in a loving and caring way
3. Responds to your child’s needs, which makes him or her feel secure, confident, and more excited to explore and learn
Children begin to learn at birth and, in fact, 90 percent of your child’s brain develops by age 5. Quality child care, provided by an inspiring caregiver in a nurturing environment, will allow for a safe place where your children can ultimately thrive – which is what early learning is all about.
