What Are Parent's Responsibilities With Quality Child Care Centers ?

Dec 25, 2007
There are many places a parent can look for information on quality child care establishments. The internet is filled with articles and blogs that give details on what to look for, or rather, what a daycare center should offer you. But is this information enough? Do the writers cover enough information in such a short amount of space? There are often many other items left off the list and a new parent needs to know what to expect.

You have selected a great school to help take care of your child while you are unable. They have a responsibility to ensure that your child is given proper care, the right nutritious meals and snacks, as well as to help educate your child.

You have responsibilities as well. If you want your child to attend a quality child care facility, then you must be involved. Studies have shown that parents who are actively involved in their children's lives and schooling will have children who do well in school.

There are some unspoken rules when it comes to children and daycare. They may seem like common sense issues but are often overlooked. It is the simple courtesies that many parents are too busy to be concerned with and as a result, the daycare suffers.

One area in which a quality child care establishment might see problems is from cranky children. No, not a child who is cranky because they want more attention or are feeling poorly, but children who are cranky because a parent did not get them to bed at a reasonable hour. Lack of sleep can seriously interfere with a classroom setting. Small children need at least nine hours of sleep each night in order to be rested.

Regardless of whether you are using a high dollar quality child care school or the local babysitter, you have the responsibility of ensuring that your child is healthy enough to attend. Far too many parents knowingly pack their children off to school when the child should be kept at home.

Fever, flu or even head lice can spread through a daycare center very quickly. If you must be at work, do not endanger the welfare of the other children by sending your child to school when they have a contagious condition. It is not fair to the children, staff or other parents. You should always have a back-up plan in case your child is ill.

A quality child care center has an obligation to care for your child and provide them with a safe, nurturing environment when you cannot. Make sure you return the favor. Be respectful with the staff and ensure that your child is able to attend preschool without illness, with adequate sleep and by being actively involved in the parent-teacher relationship.
