Parent-Provider Partnership

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS AND PROVIDERS TO DEVELOP A PARTNERSHIP.


Some points to consider in this quest:


HAVE YOUR CHILD CARE EXPECTATIONS BEEN REASONABLY MET?


      After your child has been in care of a licensed home provider for a few weeks, do you feel your expectations have been reasonably met? After the interview and initial weeks in care, your impressions may be different. Now is a good time for some self evaluation to be sure this is the right choice for both you and your child. Here are suggestions of some questions to think about:  



Most parents can answer yes to these questions. If you have any doubts about the home you have chosen for your child, please consider talking with your provider about your concerns. The section at the top of this page discusses ways to develop a partnership with your provider. If you feel a solution cannot be met, consider interviewing other Licensed Child Care Providers.

Each provider has their own way of doing business and interacting with children and parents. You may find another home where you and your child feel more comfortable. Your gut feeling is an excellent guide. Pay attention to it. Remember, it is all about choices. You, the parent, must make the final choice in the care of your child.
