First Impressions Count When Exploring Child Care

One important step in choosing  child care is to visit the programs you are considering. With so many great child care programs out there, choosing can be hard. Sometimes a place just feels right but defining the activities that create a welcoming and loving environment can help.

A Heart for Children

When a provider truly enjoys caring for children, they are warm and responsive to children’s needs. Nurturing care shapes a child’s ability to learn and helps them develop a sense of trust and security. When looking for quality child care, look for providers who:

•Cuddle, touch, talk to and listen to children

•Show respect for children by responding to their feelings and needs with nurturing and acceptance

•Celebrate children’s new skills

•Use a respectful tone of voice and sit or kneel down to get on the child’s level


A Heart for Parents

High quality providers want to develop a positive and respectful relationship with parents too. They will take the time to get to know each family. Look for providers who:

•Regularly talk to parents about their child’s development and learning

•Encourage parents to visit the program any time their children are in care

•Encourage parent participation

•Share information about conferences, family nights, and community resources

•Are sensitive to the separation anxiety parents and their child may feel

Marketing Tips for Child Care Providers

Attract New Business by Marketing Your Child Care

For many child care providers, summer can be a slow season with lower enrollment. It might be the perfect time to think about how you can promote your program. Whether you are an owner of a new child care business or a provider who has been caring for children for years, it is important to have a marketing plan. And if you’ve never considered marketing your program, take some easy first steps.

·Consider your interests and skills and what makes your program stand out.  Create a brief statement that highlights your business.

·Look at your program from a parent’s viewpoint. Does it look inviting? Clean? Cheerful?

·How do you respond to interested families?  Do you or your staff answer the phone professionally? Do you respond to questions promptly? Is your voicemail set up?

Explore more ideas with our “Marketing Your Child Care Business” publication and others on the Publications for Providers page.

Book Review

llama llama mad at mama

by Anna Dewdney

llama llama mad at mama is filled with catchy rhymes and wonderful pictures.  This book is a fun read for adults and for kids.

All the books in the Llama Llama series provide excellent examples of preschool age development and the impact that calm, patient, and loving adult interactions can have on children’s challenging behaviors.   

Women's Equality Day is August 26th!

Use your consumer power to support female entrepreneurs. You can find lists of women-owned businesses on the Small Business Administration’s website.
