    What did you discover about the WACS while completing the activity?

    While doing the activity, I discovered that there are many rules that early learning programs and educators need to follow for the benefit of the children. I liked how the WAC guidelines were explained very clearly and prioritized the health and safety of the children.

    Were you surprised by any of the WACS?

    I was surprised by the definition of WAC when it mentioned terms such as asexual and bisexual. I was surprised that the WAC defined those terms because I feel like those kinds of terms are not associated with early learning, but liked how the WAC mentioned these terms because I think it is very important for educators to be educated in gender and sexuality. I also in general really liked this WAC section because it had clear definitions of terms that I was not familiar with.

    Can you see how the WACS will influence your day-to-day practice in caring for children? Why or why not?

    I think the WACS will influence my day-to-day practices in caring for children because they are very helpful bits of information. For example, I think it is important to know the floor plans and emergency routes and exits and know where the emergency routes are posted in the early learning program. I also think it will act as a guide as to what to expect in all early learning programs such as licensed educators and first aid kits.
