Child care news
Here are some recent national headlines for the all-important Child Care Industry.
A survey was taken by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) in 2008 and 2013, asking questions about pest problems that child care centers have been dealing with. Though the types of pests (ants, spiders, stinging insects and rodents) have remained unchanged, the methods to deal with them are much healthier, and parents are being notified more consistently.
A new concept on raising children mindfully and looking towards their future has come about. Much like a financial trust fund, where cash, stocks, bonds and property are involved, an emotional trust fund includes crucial elements dedicated toward a child’s future success . Nannies and child care centers are like the “stocks” of an emotional trust fund, key players that help to mold a child’s future. Choices made in the early years are extremely important and can make the difference in a child’s success as they develop.
You may be surprised to learn that as many as 1 million state-licensed early childhood educators are at-risk for functional illiteracy. According to Valerie Strauss, from the Washington Post, center educator’s reading and writing skills are inadequate to manage daily living and employment tasks that require reading beyond a basic level.
