At Children’s Discovery Center the daycare is split into two buildings, one building is for the children in pre-school and the second building is for infants to three year olds getting ready to start pre- school. The classroom I observe is for children 18 months to 28 months. They are about fourteen children in the class with two teachers. The way the class is set up the younger students and their two teachers share one classroom, but the teachers and their toddlers are not in the same room until lunch time and nap time. The classroom has a kitchen, reading area, girls and boys bathroom, activity tables and there is a connecting room for the children to have bible time and free play. The discovery center has three separate playgrounds for the
Daycare has become a controversy because of the great quantity of advantages and disadvantages that it involves. While a very large number of parents have to rely on child care centers because of career ambitions or financial needs that only their jobs can fulfill, most child psychiatrists believe that the ideal growing environment for an infant is at home with the family. The problem is that choosing the right caregiver, a good substitute for the parents, is very hard, and the consequences of a wrong decision can be very detrimental to the child’s personality development. This choice depends on many factors like culture, education and especially income. In fact, the financial availability plays the most
The second request is for a change in the loan parameters for Wee Little Daycare. As a result of the delay between the original approval and the actual closing date, the aggregate loan amount decreased from $874,000 to $726.200. The decision was made to decrease the loan amortization from 4 years to 3 years resulting in a slight improvement of the DSC and a reduction in the LTV to 74.4%. This resulted in more favorable terms and eliminated the original LTV policy
When you require the services of a day-care centre to care for your child, you need to find one that provides quality care to children throughout the day. To ensure that the child care centre you select is reliable, there are certain factors to look for to determine it is the right for your child. We provide you a list of these factors here in this information.
The name of Rachel and I’s preschool was Chit Chatter Clubhouse. Our philosophy discusses how our preschool strives to educate the whole child physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. We also strive to provide stimulation activities that will prepare our students for the future. Based off of this philosophy we were able to choose different materials from the content areas and set up our classroom with the areas of science, math, block, art, P.E./movement, dramatic play, and reading/writing and morning meeting/circle time. We decided on materials for these areas based off of our goals as well. We found developmentally appropriate furniture such as shelves, tables, chairs, and couches. These furniture pieces were low to the ground since we are teaching 3-5 year olds. Along with these furniture pieces, we have a teacher area with shelving and a desk for us so we can create lessons or work on things to make us better teachers. We have sinks and bathrooms that help students become independent and learn healthy
Through interviewing Joyce I gained insight into a strong philosophy, leadership style, and how her background experiences have created the director she is today. When deciding to become a director of a daycare, there are two options: opening and owning your own center or directing an established or corporate owned daycare. While I have done much research on owning my own daycare, I have little experience about what it would be like to be the director of an established center. Financial responsibilities and budgeting are also two aspects that are important, but the level of responsibility is drastically different in each scenario. Lastly, legal and ethical responsibilities exist in either scenario as well.
1. Context/ Introduction: For my third observation, on Monday October 17th, I returned back to the Kean University Child Care Center. Just like my second observation I came for my observation for the hour of 10:30-11:30 am. This time in the classroom there was four teacher aides and the teacher Ms. Kierah. When I walked into the classroom I was surprised when one of the teacher aides told me that Ethan has a lot of energy in class that day. She explained that Ethan had a lot of energy that his listening skills were a little off as well. Once she was done explaining this I was anxious to see this for myself. I saw Ethan was playing at the middle table with one other boy Steve. Quietly, I sat at the table to the right of the middle table and began my notes.
We went to visit Immanuel Baptist Daycare which is located in Hannibal, MO on March 23, 2016. Linda Youse is the director at Immanuel and she was able to take time and answer questions that we had for her and give us a tour of the facility. This year is Linda’s 8th year as the director of Immanuel Baptist Daycare. She also has an education degree where she can teach from Kindergarten to eighth grade. During the time where we asked her questions, she was able to give an answer to all and explain them to us. At Immanuel, their number one job is to make sure all the children are safe.

For the collaboration portion of my project I chose to collaborate with the daycare director and 10 parents of the children who attend the daycare. The role of the director was to inform me and help me to better understand how their policies work and how they respond to policy change. The parent’s role in this collaboration process included giving me feedback and ideas on what changes they would like to see and what they already like about the current policy. In order to obtain the information I needed for this project, I met with the director and parents of the children on many different occasions to observe and interview the parents and staff members. Also when meeting with the director and parents we discussed my observations and ideas that
Daycare has turn into a debate for the reason there are two sides to every debate and then there is what some would call the middle. There are advantages and disadvantages when it comes to leaving one’s child in the care of another individual and many aspects play an acting role and the list is unlimited when comes to what all it involves. Although a very large number of parents require the assistances of childcare facilities’, because of the economy, or financial needs that only their jobs can fulfill, single parents and more individuals going back to college, or the career goals that one as sat for themselves not only for the sake of their children, but a better future for the family. For the most part child psychiatrists consider the ideal growing environment for an infant in the home with the family. For The vernacular used and the amount of time-spent teaching, the child day-to-day skills are more essential and the setting comes into play as well.
As stated prior, depending on the quality of the daycare, the developmental outcomes of children who were in daycare can differ. For children in high quality daycare, they are exposed to a highly social environment where they create multiple peer relationships. The children are encouraged to interact with one another and they learn from each other as well as from the staff members. By being exposed to peer relationships at a young age, children have the opportunity to begin to create their identity to use later in life (Puroila & Estola, 2013).
