How do you know a good childcare environment for your child? Parents and carers are concerned on how their child is being looked after in nurseries or childminders but must of the time it is down to trust. Trust is a two way thing.
Parents think ‘can I trust this person to give my child the best possible care when I am not there’ and the childcare professional think ‘will this parent be happy with the childcare provided’. The answer is team work between parents and childcare providers. Not all childcare providers have a professional service and at the same time not all parents are understanding.
Common sense is important for both parties to work together in achieving the best possible care for the child. Parents that are concerned about the care provided for their children should first speak with the provider and if no joy is gotten from that, contacting OFSTED could be of help.
