the “Best Place on Earth”
As a FAMILY child care home, we offer smaller ratios of children to adults. I normally have six children or less in my care at one time, and if more than 6 children are present my adult daughter assists me most of the time. I have a large license and can care for as many as 14, but have never done so.
The foundation of family child care is relationships. These are important relationships between children and providers, providers and the parents, and the children with each other. Family child care fosters emotionally secure interpersonal relationships with all families involved in care.
As a family care provider I care for multi-aged groups of children allowing children to remain with me for many years. This develops trust and security in children. I've had the opportunity to care for children that started as infants and stayed with me until they were ready to move on to the 3rd grade. Many years of having one consistent caregiver builds strong bonds and attachments that helps young child to have a secure emotional foundation to build on.
