EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Our staff members are trained to communicate effectively with infants, toddlers, their parents, and other Tiny Tots staff members. They maintain a positive, calm attitude and a pleasant, soothing voice, and models this attitude and voice for parents and others working or volunteering in the program.
Tiny Tots Day Care Services aims to establish open and accessible communication with the parents and guardians of the children we serve through telephone calls, e-mails, letters/messages sent to the home, and through personal contact at meetings, fund-raisers, parent workshops, and many other mediums.
NURTURING PERSONALITIES & QUALITIES
Our teachers offer the tenderness, warmth, and patience that is so essential to the development of young children. The Tiny Tots program is designed to promote feelings of belonging and loving care which help children to grow and develop to their full potential. Our teachers and staff trained to maintain effectively, working relationships with the children, the families, and their fellow staff members. This ensures that the child(ren) feels comfortable in our classroom settings when their parents leave and parents/guardians can be content knowing their kin are well cared for.
CHILD MONITORING & ASSESSMENTS
All age groups are assessed formally and informally to ensure that the teachers plan their curriculum goals and activities to support individualized learning. Our formal assessments are done twice a year, (October and May). Our teachers observe, record and document children’s development, participation and learning throughout the year. The informal assessments are ongoing, systematic and gathered from natural play activities and realistic setting that reflects children’s actual performance.
On a regular basis, Tiny Tots staff members are responsible for observing and monitoring the children to detect any signs of illness, injury, abuse, neglect, emotional disturbance, or other special needs, and reports these signs immediately to the center director or person in charge.
