I am a stay at home mom of three children ages 3-9. I live near Hampden and Tower in Aurora. I am able to offer you and your spouse the best date night ever. I will watch your kids in my house and give your children their own bed to sleep in. So this way you can actually have time with each other without curfew. I am available to watch your family during the week. We go on adventures, it could be the zoo, skating, painting, who knows. I do all this out of my home. I provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. I have car seats for everyone. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
The benefits of high quality early learning experiences for children appeal to both early childhood programs and families. By participating in the Qualistar Rating™ programs receive a detailed Quality Performance Profile© (QPP) that includes strengths and areas for improvement specific to their program and classrooms. Families benefit by accessing the program’s Quality Rating Report and by gaining an understanding of the components contributing to quality early learning experiences. This helps parents make more informed choices on the type of care they would like for their child.
Each family can choose a child care provider that best meets their needs. CCAP will pay the provider directly for times when the parent is at the approved activity. Arapahoe County Department of Human Services will conduct background checks on providers. Parents can conduct online child care searches by visiting Colorado Shines or call the Colorado Shines Child Care Referral Line at 877-338-2273. You can check into any licensing history for licensed or registered providers.
You ensure that your little one sees the doctor for general health care. Dental care is an important part of taking care of a child’s health, too. As a good parent you know that taking care of one’s teeth is a great habit to teach young people from a very early age. Everyone loves to show off a brilliant smile, at every age. And when kids take care of their pearly whites from a young age, they’ll maintain their beautiful smile for years to come.
Your government contends that these changes are necessary because they will “increase access”. To the contrary, analyses by public entities and community service providers show that “new” infant rooms with a younger, narrower age range at a very high fee will close and that there will be severe financial and practical effects that affect service viability across age groups.
Thus, we propose that your government needs to withdraw proposed changes to age ranges, ratios and group sizes. Instead we recommend that the government develop a well-considered road map that begins with a clear vision, goals/objectives, targets and timetables, with regulatory changes as one part of this plan. This would have a better chance for successful policy change. We also call on Ontario to play a positive leadership role with the new federal Liberal government and other provinces/territories in developing the high quality universal integrated ECEC system that so many have been seeking for so long.
My licensed home childcare will incorporate the experience and knowledge I have gained while working 13 years as a preschool teacher most of which was at a NAEYC accredited 4 Star Qualistar rated program. I am CPR/First Aid certified. I have a fenced in backyard and there is a park nearby. I absolutely LOVE spending my days watching children learn, grow, and experience the world around them, to me there is no other job as rewarding!
