Most parents think childcare is a babysitting service. This is a misconception, as childcare is a profession as any other. There are so many important things to note about the challenging and rewarding career of being a childcare provider.
Childcare is a business and the providers are professionals. The childcare providers will have rules, regulations, work schedules' and pay rates for the care provided. The provider will take his/her own time to create a handbook, contract, and other details that help to foster communications and understanding.
Childcare providers and parents should be clear on the rules such as transportation, discipline approaches, food to be given, and other care issues.
