High Quality Child Care may be defined as child care services that provide a responsive, developmentally appropriate environment for young children. This quality care, added to a quality home environment, leads to the best possible physical, intellectual, and social-emotional development in the child. Parents who know that their child is receiving quality child care can be assured that their child is safe, nurtured, and challenged to learn.
1. Structure and routine. Kids thrive on structure and routine and high quality childcare maintains a healthy balance of structured time and unstructured time to play, think and just be a kid.
2. Reliability. If the provider gets sick, you’ll be in a scramble trying to make back up arrangements, or you may have to take off work. No matter what the circumstances, there are always loving, qualified childcare providers to take care of your little one so you can go to work with peace of mind.
3. Developmentally appropriate curriculum. The curriculum is based on your child’s age and developmental readiness. You know your child will be getting just what they need for Social Development, Emotional Development, Language Development, Physical Development, Cognitive development & Fine Motor Skills Development.
4. Kids are never bored! Kids are rarely bored in a childcare setting as they can be at home. There’s always something to do and kids to interact with.
5. Socialization. Kids learn to socialize with other children and learn to navigate the ups and downs of peer relationships. They learn self-control, how to get along with others and to share.
6. Peace of mind. High quality childcare settings offer peace of mind – what you want most for the care of your little one. Lil’ Cubs ChildCare exceeds the standards for health, safety, and educational development.
7. Preschool & Kindergarten readiness.
8. Less separation anxiety upon entering school. Usually, there is less separation anxiety (or none at all) when your child enters school if they have been in childcare. They already used to being away from you for some time during the day. They have learned how to make new friends and can be content without your undivided attention. The transition to preschool or kindergarten is far less difficult for those who’ve experienced childcare.
