First Day of Kindergarten

What Role Can Child Care Providers
and Educators Play?

Outside the family, no one has more contact with young children thank you child care providers or educators. Your relationship with children and families are unique.

You model behaviors for children and families that they may adopt at home, from demonstrating empathy to showing how to provide physical care to setting boundaries.

Since you are most likely seen by the parents as allies, your feedback or referrals to families may be likely be welcomed, not resented.

What Can You Do?

Share information about child development when you see or suspect that parents have unrealistic expectations of their children's behaviors
