Working with infants and toddlers, I have a hand in assisting the parents in making the child a youngster that has respect for parents, providers, teachers, etc. etc. The first few years are so important in developing their self-esteem, leadership, compassion and respect along with their physical abilities and motor skills. There are so many parts of day care that have nothing to do with the fee that you charge. You can’t deposit those hugs you get as they are leaving day care in the bank nor can you list the number of times you have been told “I love you” on a financial statement.
I decided to write this book for all the first-time parents that deal with the stress of finding a day care provider and leaving their most valuable possession with a person they have just recently met. My hope is that after reading this book, they will feel they have made the best choice for them and for the youngster.
