Environmental Factors For Physical Activity In Infant Day Care Henderson NV

The environmental factors should be carefully audited in any Infant Day Care Henderson NV so that your child feels at home and taken care of always. There are to primary domains about the physical activity environment that is to be considered. One is the physical characteristics of the place like the size of the outdoor play area and the suitability of the indoor play station for different activities. The other one is the practices of the daycare like the participation of the staff during outdoor games and the provision of staff for specifically structured activities. Direct observation is necessary for such considerations along with information collected from other parents whose wards are already enrolled.      

The level of training acquired by the teachers regarding physical activity, the temperature of indoors as well as outdoors, lessons taught for physical activity, quality of the outdoor playing area, the presence of audio-visual system all contributes to the quality of the environment of the day care facility. There are some other things to consider as well for judging the environment of a day care center and find whether or not it is suitable for your child. All the rooms of the day care center should be well ventilated if not suitably air-conditioned. Availability of clean, fresh and filtered running water is compulsory as infants are prone to germs.

A power cut could be an issue during the summer, and therefore the facility should have proper backup for power so that the medicines and food stored for the child are safe in a clean and perfectly working refrigerator. The area in which the bags and spare clothes for your child would be kept must be clean and disinfected as well. It is better that separate locker with keys are provided for each child so that no one has to share anything with the others. Any good center would have a strict policy on potty training, and no staff should hit or abuse a child for any unwanted accidental release of excreta.       

Security is another thing in a safe environment with a proper boundary wall with men posted at the gate all the time to eliminate unwanted entry or exits. No child under any circumstances should be handed over to any stranger and parents must be provided with authorization cards. A dedicated medical room with properly trained staff should be there to handle emergency situations with a doctor on call, toys and splash pools should be kept away and safe from children when not in use.   

All electrical connections and points should be locked and at a height where children cannot reach, protective grills should be there on stairs and balconies, toilets and dustbins should be clean and hygienic and specially designed for children to use. Above all, the environment of the day care center must be more like a home rather than a school or prison. That way your child would not acquire a fear of schools and would want to go to school in the future and thus the behavior of the teachers, non-teaching staff and administrators must be disciplined and loving.
