Featured Article

The Perfect Daycare Interview

By Ursula Vogt

Who conducts a daycare interview, the parents or the caregiver?

Ask a parent and I’m sure they’ll tell you they interview the providers before they decide where the comfort level is.  There is a lot to consider while choosing who takes care of those most precious to them.  And they’re right.

Ask a childcare provider who conducts the interview and you’ll get a resounding, “I do.”  And, that’s right, too.  They are responsible for making sure parents have the proper forms filled out, know their way around, the hours, the rules and regs…the list is exhausting.  But that’s the least of it.  Providers have the right and the responsibility of assessing whether their potential client is a good match for the rest of the group, and for their own abilities.


Operating Instructions for Human Beings

By Robert Rickover

“I’m from the factory and I know how instructions are put together. You go out on the assembly line with a tape recorder and the foreman sends you to talk to the guy he needs least, the biggest goof-off he’s got, and whatever he tell you - that’s the instructions. The next guy might have told you something completely different, and probably better, but he’s too busy”. - from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Persig
