    This question should really be a statement. All families ARE the primary educators of their children. The child care provider’s role is to support the families.

    How can childcare providers support families in this role?

    It is the providers job to strengthen family relations. We need to foster positive relationships with families and work with community resources to best meet young children’s needs.

    Why is supporting families so important?

    Providers can offer insight to the child’s development, offer information on new tasks the child performed, offer ideas on how to help the child continue growth in this new area of learning. Everything we do is for the betterment of the child and the strengthening of the family.
