I believe that children, providers, and parents do best when everyone participates in “get-to-know-you” sessions prior to the first day of care. This helps children get used to the provider and allows parents plenty of time to ask questions to the provider. It also helps everyone feel more comfortable with the situation. This benefits the child by allowing us to approach the first day of care with ease which helps reduce stress for everyone.
Children benefit from a stable, long-term care environment. Our hope is that these visits will help reduce the number of misunderstandings that can inevitably arise, so we can develop a good working relationship and avoid the need for unnecessary termination of care.
