restrooms, etc.). Rooms that are used for child care must be well-lighted, have good airflow 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 “centre’s” 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 a 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 childcare 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 a save side
It’s sometimes helpful to portray part of lessons to families in efforts to demonstrate how children are engaged in learning at our center. Making connection with parents has always helped a school/centre to progress and developed. This age group that is mentioned in this article they know there basic numbers and sounds, with this group of children there a lot of things that a teacher/parent can carry out in an educational and active play activities such as, mystery bag, treasure box math/English, reading, role play, pretend play, art &craft and many more to make learning fun for our little ones. Parents teacher meeting are the best way to have a conversation with the parents, once in a year it should be conducted by the centre to share ideas with the parents. The two indoor lesson that our centre would like to conduct that are age- and developmentally-appro¬priate, play-based, hands-on, fun, and engaging while also teaching children about any topic related to health, safety, or nutrition. The first lesson will be “comfy caterpillar”. The preparation for this lesson, that an adult should do prior when starting the lesson is to wash hands and vegetable that are carrots, celery, and cucumbers then cut all the veggies into small pieces, set all vegetables on a separate plates, place whipped cream cheese in a bowl and write children’s names on the edge of a paper plate with a permanent marker. When all the above is done now the following steps will be completed by the children. The first procedure is to wash hand, select plate with his/her name, count and place three pieces of carrots, celery and cucumber on their plate, take a spoonful of whipped cream cheese on the plate, pattern the vegetables on the plate (carrot, celery, cucumber, carrot, celery, cucumber, carrot, celery, and then cucumber), use a plastic knife to place whipped cream cheese between each vegetable, press the vegetable into the cream cheese. The cheese will hold the caterpillar pieces
