Role of the Child Care Provider

The child care professional plays an essential role in the growth and development of young children while parents work.  With increasing emphasis on the educational outcomes of our young children through initiatives such as “No Child Left Behind” and “Race to the Top”, a closer look into the field of early care and education is occurring.  Children spend the majority of their day in some type of early care program and the learning experiences provided for them during that time are critical to their healthy development and the skills they need to succeed in school and in life.
