Your child’s child care center should have:

A Housekeeping Corner
Large & Small Blocks
Wheel Toys
Sand & Water Toys
A Science Corner

You should see and hear:

Children playing and working in small groups  – NOT – all children doing the same thing at the same time.
Children talking and singing as they playNOT – a formal, silent school atmosphere.
Children taking materials and equipment from open shelvesNOT – children doing nothing, waiting for the next activity.
Children painting and drawing whatever they wishNOT – children filling coloring books or copying the teacher’s pattern.
Children given plenty of time to accomplish a task NOT – adults impatiently doing the job for the child.
Children given advance notice when it’s time to stop – NOT – children pulled from one activity into another one.
Honest praises being given abundantlyNOT – comparing one child’s work to another.
Adults stooping to a child’s level and speaking calmly NOT – adults shouting at a child across the room.
Adults listening to a child with interest and respect NOT – adults talking about a child in his presence as though he wasn’t there.
Adults finding out why a child misbehaves NOT – scolding or shaming of a child.
Acceptance and respect for a child’s feelingsNOT – telling a child that good boys and girls are never angry or cry.
The mother of a new child sitting where her child can see herNOT – the mother of a weeping child told to leave when he isn’t looking.
