    Families would be the primary educators of children because as children grow and develop they tend to mimic the behavior of the adults around them. Overall a child will spend the most time with their family and as a result will learn more through observing them than anyone else. Childcare providers can support this role by observing the child’s progression through development milestones and sharing this information with the family whenever possible and applicable. As mentioned above, families are the primary educator for most children and by supporting them we are helping to strengthen the quality of “education” that the child gets from their family.
