To maintain a commitment to professionalism...
To maintain a commitment to professionalism, I make sure that I take the time each day to communicate wih the parents, both when they arrive with their child in the morning and when they arrive at the end of the day. This communication is vital in earning the parents trust, participation and support. I use this time to inform the parents of their child's daily activities, new developments, changing in habits and any problems or concerns that I might have. This is also and excellent opportunity for the parents to express concerns or suggestions that they might have.
I fully respect the parents wishes and decisions. And keep any differences of opinions to myself. I ensure that I present myself in a professional manner while making sure that I have a positve attutude. Afteral, we all have different opinions when it comes to raising children. If I have a concern or a problem with a child, I focus solelt on the behavior rather than the child. For example; biting is not nice, not Jackson. I also ensure that all information relased to me remains confidential.
I am open to any and all suggestions from the parents. By working together as a team, things will run smoothly and be a comfortable place for everyone involved, including the children.
I ensure that the care I provide is consistent regardless of what may be happening in my life at home. This way the children know what to ecpect from me and remain comfortable while in my care. I give my complete attention to the children and put my personal life aside.
