    If I was a parent of a young child, three things I would want most from my child’s provider is for them to 1. Care for my child the same way they would for others.

    2. Give them the attention and support they need.

    3. Protect them and accept them for who they are.

    Three fears I might have when leaving my child under someone else’s care is

    1. Them not paying no sort of attention to my child

    2. Not protecting my child

    3. Not being their for them when they need help or support

    If I were the parent of a young child the three things I would want most from my child’s provider would be transparency, communication, and commitment to my child’s success. Three fears that I might have when leaving my child in someone else’s care is that, they will not protect my child the way that I would, not being 100% honest with me, and that they would not have my child’s best interest in mind.

    I would want for them to take care of my kids like they were their own, treat them equally and respectfully, teach them things in a safe and comfortable environment that will help them in the process of growing up. my 3 fears are the being hurt, treated differently/unfairly for no valid reason, not being taught knowledgable appropriate things.

    1. If you were the parent/family of a young child, what three things would you want most from your child’s care provider? I am a parent of a young child in an early learning center and the three things that I want the most are educational development I want to see progress with his learning. I also want to know that he is safe and being treated well, as well as treating others kindly in return. I also want him to be able to be embraced for who he is and making friends and connections.
    2. Identify three fears you might have when leaving your child in someone’s care. Three fears that I have leaving him in someones else’s care is whether or not he is safe, if he is getting enough attention and care, and if he is having fun and making friends.

    1. Transparency from the providers of what kind of care I should expect my child to have.

    2. Allowing my child creative freedom.

    3. For my child to be treated kindly.


    1. Abuse and neglect

    2. Not enough support

    3. Not being treated fairly

    My child is actually going to be enrolled at my place of employment. Three things that I would want for him is for him to get the time and attention he needs from the provider, I would also want the provider to have a good relationship with my son so that he feels confident and secure with the teacher, and I also would want the provider to keep me informed and included in what he is learning and if they notice that he needs help or if he is advanced.

    -Honesty/ transparency

    -Positive/ outgoing

    -Responsible/ reliable


    -Is my child getting enough interaction with their provider and peers?

    -Is my child happy and enjoying their time while I am not there?

    -Is my child engaged in learning or just being ‘babysat’?

    3 things want most:

    -Care for child

    -influence & support that reinforces my role as parent

    -expertise that trains child in ways I might not know and helps me to grow in how to do the same

    3 fears:

    -Not seek what is best for my child

    -Make assumptions about my child without full picture or willingness to hear my input

    -Seek to influence child away from me or my role in their life.

    If I were the parent of a young child, three things I would want from my child’s provider would be; to know that they get along and play with others and that they’re being social with their peers, to know that they are safe/well taken care of like I would do at home, and to know that they are being tended to when upset.
