What does that mean? It is care for your child, but in my home. My home consists of me, a mom, and my family including pets, similar to your family. As a mom I care for your child's basic needs, loving and playing with him in my home.
Family-style daycare is an advantage over a child care center because:
♥ INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION: As your child's caregiver, I will get to know your child very well. I am not one of a staff of people who will be caring for your child, but your child's primary caregiver.
♥ FAMILY ATMOSPHERE: Your child will be exposed to a family each day, while he is in my care. We eat our meals together, play together, learn together, etc. Additionally, there is lots of supervised free play, just like home!
♥ HEALTH: There's less chances of germs being passed around. I can't promise that your child will never become ill, but the less people your child is exposed to, the less likely your child will become ill.
♥ SAFETY: Care homes are safer than a center. The cargiver to child ratio is kept low. Our home is checked often for safety hazzards, inspected by the fire department, and cleaned often. There are specific safety guidelines I must adhere to.
