Welcome parents to our preschool. Our belief is to create healthy, safety and proper nutritional and productive environment for our children whereby they can grow as an individual through hands-on learning with experiments and activities to support them in group education. In this preschool, we join hands with parents to help our children build the right foundation for future learning and life. Our goal is to help our children have fun while building active minds, healthy bodies and happy hearts in a friendly stimulating environment whereby your child will grow as an independent, confident and caring individual. Parents and teacher will play a vital role bringing out the best in our children. Parents of our preschool will highly be encouraged to be a community in raising children with good ethics and morals. The preschool students are maximum 60 children of age 3-5 years, the ratio of 20 kids per teacher and teacher’s assistant and a staff member will be with them in a class.
An ideal location for the day care, there are many factor to consider before deciding on a location, the centre needs to look for health and safety issues in the indoor and outdoor space. The one who is responsible for the centre chooses an ideal location considering all the above needs, a home base structured house with large rooms that can be converted into a child care centre. That the house at relatively low cost, many of this structure are easily made suitable for a child care as the child feel safe as its foundation is similar to home, it should be convenient for parents to easily get in and out of the parking lot, or access main roads and interstates, so as to make drop off and pick up easy. The centre should reflect on a number of things securities, exit route that can be used on emergency basis, fire prevention and safety, lighting, ventilation, plumbing etc. when done with the location child care provider is required to have a child care license in order to legally provide child care. A child care license is separate from a business license. When all above is done the childcare provider need to be careful with the space, it is a very important aspect in a centre, too little space or poorly designed free space creates risk for injury and diseases. An early educational professional should have 35sq feet of free space per child; more space for a special need is needed. Outdoor play area must have ample of space for age 3-5 year old and the playground should be designed with fences and activities such as sand play area, racing track, slides and swings. Keeping all the aspect in the mind of safety a security guard should be at gate/entrance all the time, staff/teachers should be at the play area/playground when children are around, we do understand injuries occurs during active play but supervision should be there to ensure safety. Additional outdoor play space should be planned for children with special needs or disabilities. Maintenances is an essential part so that the centre can keep up with maintaining it, therefore the centre can be presented in a more appealing way to the parents. The centre should have a routine cleaning and the methods are schedule for cleaning and sanitizing, a schedule for the staffs should be made on who is responsible for supervising and monitoring with the cleaning and other maintenance activities with cleaning, sanitizing and disinfected schedule and keeping up with the equipment and cleaning supplies, a checklist should be prepared for all the above routine to keep up with the staff.
When child care provider is done with the above survey and site his next step ought to be is the indoor planning. When planning our indoor child care environment, our main concerns should be the health and safety of the children in our care. Our centre will need to look for potential hazards in our child care space and take steps to prevent injury and unsafe conditions. We should also think about how our space will promote safe play and learning for the children in our care. Select which areas of our facility will be used for the child care and which will be off limits to children in care (such as rooms for staff to rest or eat lunch, cleaning closets, staff restrooms, etc.). Rooms that are used for child care must be well-lighted, have good air flow and be kept at a comfortable temperature and humidity. Setting an indoor space for our centre, space should be well-organized and have separate areas. Children should know where things are and where to put them away. Consider creating “centers” for each kind of play, such as: Circle time, with a rug for sitting and a place to display children’s names and pictures of children and their families, a calendar, pictures illustrating their daily schedule, program rules, etc. A quiet reading area with comfortable pillows or armchairs and low shelving or baskets for access to age-appropriate books, Sensory activities area, dramatic play, with dress-up clothes, dolls and stuffed animals, and other props, Arts and crafts area, with a variety of art supplies, Writing area, with writing materials, notepads and paper and a small table with a couple of chairs. The centre’s best step is creating a safe environment for children are to see space from a child’s point of view. Getting down on our hands and knees and looking around. Thinking about the children we will have our care. Our centre will have 3-5 year old so according to this age we need to think what aspects of our environment could be dangerous for our children? Some common child care hazards and their fixes can include: Hanging cords and curtains, drawer/cupboard openings should be installed finger pinch protection devices or dampers to doors, cupboards, cabinets and gates that could pinch a child’s fingers, Electrical outlets should be securely cover all outlets not in use. To make sure that children cannot reach cords and outlets that are being used. Hazardous substances and objects should be stored all hazardous materials in a locked cabinet out of children’s reach. This includes cleaning materials, aerosol cans, medications, toiletries, room sprays, and other potentially toxic materials. Dangerous items such as sharp objects and plastic bags should also be secured out of reach. Floor- windows ensure that any windows above the first floor cannot be opened fully. It is possible to install barriers or locking devices that allow the window to be opened only partially. To evaluate our child care areas for these and other safety hazards. To ensure our space meets state regulations for safe and healthy child care, we should talk with a child care licensor as well to be on save side.
