I owned and operated a very successful Licensed Daycare in my Grand Rapids home for 17 years taking care of infants, toddlers, and early education students. I was responsible for the health, safety, and happiness of many infants and children over the years. My duties included - - Daily communication with all parents concerning their child’s emotional state, food they ate, sleep habits, what they learned that day, ideas to improve behavior concerns. - Health and safety of the children. - CPR trained, First Aid Certified. ( this is current certification) -Kept daily records of attendance, recorded meals, all infants schedules were logged. - Maintained updated personal and health records on all children. - Prepared all meals. - Maintained a very clean home inside and out. - Planned daily activities based on the children’s ages. We did crafts, Circle Time, outdoor activities, incorporated music in our day, practiced our manners, Read more and many self-esteem building activities. The kids did chores (this was their favorite thing to do!) , they learned how to get along with others, sharing, and helping each other. Running a daycare requires all of this and so much more. Mostly I learned that a caring, and kind approach solved all issues. - Managed all aspects of communicating with parents and grandparents that picked up and dropped off the kids. This part of the job was very important to establish trust, transparency, and goodwill among the many families I had in my daycare. - Maintained accurate and current records concerning budget, accounts receivable, business expenses, health records, emergency procedures, attendance logs, fire drills, daily meal planning, daily activities, and behavior solutions.
