Making it Work
Quality child care for your child depends on both you and your caregiver. Share information with the caregiver about your child’s needs, interests, problems, personality- anything that will help the caregiver provide the best care for your child.
If the caregiver has concerns about your child, be open and listen without being defensive. Be willing to talk it over. Perhaps some insight from you may help your child get on the right track.
Remember, you and the caregiver are not competing for your child’s affection. No one can replace you. But the caregiver is an important person in your child’s life. Both you and the caregiver want the same thing – to do all you can to help your child grow to be a happy, caring, individual.
