Daily Program Plan
I will be maintaining a high standard of professionalism. All the children will be treated with respect and given recognition for their strengths in a variety of aspects in developing new or old skills. I want to include all children in a group setting and allow them to take part in activities as a team. Team building allows children to build important life skills. As a caregiver I am there to help promote independence by encouragement. I strongly believe that children all have different stages in development. I want each child to grow from suitable opportunities and be able to gain new skills. I will be providing a stimulating theme based program that can be challenging. I would encourage promoting healthy growth and development in children in social, emotional, cognitive, fine and gross motor skills.
