BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS: Parents & Providers Working Together!

Let's jump that fence and learn to understand and respect each other! Through stories that will make you laugh - and make you cry - we'll discover the foundations for great relationships that last for years.

CRAZY FOR KIDS:

Are we in child care because we're crazy or are we crazy because we're in child care! What's so strange about wanting to spend a day changing diapers, wiping noses, breaking up fights, getting bit and spit up on? Nothing! The love of children can drive us to do a lot of strange things so let's learn to embrace this silliness and use it to our advantage. Find out how to harness your crazy side, put some fun and happiness into YOUR day, and bring some happiness into the lives of children.

CONTROLLING THE CRAZINESS: An Administrators Guide

When everything around us seems to be going crazy - the kids, the parents, the staff - we're the ones who need to keep our sanity, right? Wrong! Learn how embracing the craziness of your business can be the key to creating a positive, stress-free environment for all the families and staff in your care. Learn to tackle problems head on with a smile!
