This provider has cared for our newborn son since he was two months old. It is apparent every day when we leave our son with the provider how careful she is with the children in her charge. She is warm and caring, and our son greets her every day with a huge smile. My husband and I feel very thankful to have her looking after our son- she is like his grandmother. From our first meeting with the provider, before our son was born, she came across as confident and competent. She answered knowledgably the myriad of questions we brought. We previously had met with several potential childcare providers, and she was far and away the most prepared to allay the fears and anxieties we, as first time parents, were feeling. The provider has been scrupulous in her adherence to the regulations governing her
licensure as a home childcare provider. She understands the rules fully and informs us politely, but firmly, when we have requested something that exceeds the bounds of her authority to provide. She has institutionalized processes, such as a daily report card, that provide feedback to parents about their children’s feeding and sleeping patterns, which allow us parents to plan our activities through the evenings.
In summation, we are very pleased with all aspects of the childcare service she provides. Since returning to work after parental leave, other new parents have asked my husband and I how we handle the anxiety of leaving our young child in the care of another person; we feel incredibly fortunate to be able to answer that, because of the confidence we have in our provider, we do not suffer anxiety when leaving our son in her capable care.
