Choosing a day care facility for your child is perhaps the most frustrating and anxiety-ridden responsibility a parent faces. You will have mixed emotions. At times you will have feelings of guilt. It is important to remember that a child's parents and family are always the most important influences in their child's ever expanding world. A day care teacher/nurturer should, however, be a dedicated person concerned with the well being of your child's continuous development. The nurturer and environment should encourage and stimulate your child to explore, learn, and to increase his/her confidence in his/her ability to do for himself/herself thus teaching your child to relate effectively with and in his/her surrounding world. The nurturer should do this with a manner and method which provides boundaries and structure enough to provide your child with physical safety and psychological security. Given the security and guidance, your child should be able to grow, explore, and develop in a wholesome, positive manner.
The staff here at Wee Care Day Care Center & Nursery School, understands that your child's stages of development are indeed unique and special for your child. You have worked hard to develop your family bond and your child's growth. At this point, we would like to present ourselves as caring professionals who can support and expand on this important role of the family. Wee Care Day Care Center & Nursery School provides a warm, secure environment with love, good physical care and an atmosphere conducive to good development.
