My child cries when I drop him in the morning- what is the best thing for me to do?
It might be difficult for you when your child is distressed at drop off but we find that they settle in very quickly and happily when their parent has left. It is best to keep your good-bye as brief as you feel comfortable with and remain as positive. Please discuss any concerns you have with your child’s teacher.

Do you discipline the children at Little Me Daycare and Nursery, if so how?
Yes, but appropriately. We believe that the discipline of a child is achieved through patience, consistency, and positive reinforcement. We also try and teach the children in our care manners, kindness and to be respectful to others. One of the ways in which we do this is by the example we set. We understand that our actions and reactions speak much louder than our words.
The children are explained to the rules of the daycare frequently, so they know what’s expected of them. Once a child is old enough to understand the rules and disobeys them by exhibiting inappropriate behavior (hitting, aggression, etc), hurts others, or property, the following developmentally appropriate guidance techniques will be used. These techniques are as follows:
- Positive Reinforcement: The child will be encouraged when he or she is demonstrating acceptable behavior.
- Redirection: The child is redirected to another activity and given an opportunity to try again at another time.
- Time-Out: The child is separated from the group for an age appropriate amount of time (one minute per one year of age). This technique is only used when a child repeatedly will not follow our directions or listen to our words, is exhibiting temper tantrum type behavior, or hurting one’s self, others or equipment. When the child shows that he or she is ready to demonstrate acceptable behavior, they are encouraged to join the rest of the group to try again.
- Last Resort: When a child’s behavior is continually upsetting or dangerous to others, a conference will be called with the parents. If the problems cannot be resolved, arrangements will have to be made for the child to go elsewhere for care.
How often do you clean the rooms and toys?
All our rooms have cleaning schedules for different areas of the classroom throughout the day/week. If a teacher sees a child cough, sneeze or put a toy in their mouth the toy goes directly into the sink in the classroom to be cleaned and sanitized. The infant room is cleaned twice a day, and the changing tables and bathrooms are disinfected after each diaper change.
What security measures are in place to protect my child?

Is there a waiting list that I can place my child on?
Yes there is but being placed on a wait list does not ensure a space, but does place clients in order of priority. It is advisable for parents to keep in touch with us.
