Comunicándose con su proveedor de cuidado infantil

Your child care provider is your partner in preparing your child for life. Ask your provider each day about what happened to your child. Open communication is essential to give your child the best opportunities to thrive.
 
Questions to ask about your child's day
• What are the activities you most enjoy?
• I take a nap? For how long and at what time?
• Did I taste all the new foods? They liked it?
• Do you see any new activity or skill in my child?
• Is there anything I should know about your day?
• Are there any supplies I need to bring?
 
The more you know about your child's day, the better you and your provider can work as partners for your child.
