Having a perfect field trip is a part of our daycare activity. Keep children busy by planning a great activity plan inside our child care is good but we cannot keep children stay inside forever. That is why, it is better for us to do some field trip to avoid boredom and providing new experiences for children. In general, field trip can give us several advantages like acquiring a new kind of experience, raising children motivation to learn and acquire new skills. We can easily make the field trip for our daycare anytime we want. However, it will be better if we can make a great plan of trip related to the lesson or our daycare preschool weekly themes. For example, if we are teaching children about safety in our daycare then it will be great to make it more complete through visiting fire or police department. It will make children more enthusiasm since they will understand easier about how to stay safe from the professional. Another kind of field trip that we can make is visiting to the zoo or local farm after teaching children in our daycare about animals.
The first thing to have a good field trip for our daycare is making a good plan. Without good planning, our field trip can ruin anytime. Pay attention to any charge of the place that we want to visit because some places charge and some other do not. However, there are many cases that parents cannot afford to pay any charge whatever how small it is. To overcome this problem and continue our business then we can try to choose less costly trip or even pay the fee by ourselves. To make children easier to learn about nature and wildlife animal, we can ask children in our daycare to visit the zoo, dairy farm, nature hikes, aquarium, horse farm, aquarium or even butterfly garden. As provider, we need to clever to choose a place for our field trip. Just be sure that our field trip plan will be useful for children in our daycare to learn and not cost much money to show that we do care about parent financial burden. If we want children to get ease to learn about history then the museum will be the right place. Beside that, the library is also a great source to learn not only about history but any other learning source. The planetarium will be a great place to teach about geography. Children in our daycare will also love to visit the florist, greenhouse or vegetable and fruit picking park and learn about gardening and maintain environmental balance.
If we want to teach creativity to children in our daycare then we can simply ask them to visit television station, radio station, local theatre production and photography studio. In those places, children will learn about the importance of creativity and how a creativity can resulting great result. Try to choose a local business because they are commonly loving to help daycare provider. Bakery can be one of the example. We can make a plan of making a cake demonstration This kind of place is also cost less. Another way to reduce the charge of the field trip is by looking for children family whether they have parent or relatives that work in certain places where we are possible to conduct a field trip. Do not forget about the permission slip. Be sure that all parents have already signed in. If the financial condition is not making us possible to do a field trip, we still can do it in our own daycare. If we have a backyard then gardening together will be great. Pretending to be fireman and train all children with the fire alarm is also similar as costless choice. When your field trip is finished, it is better to make a special reminder. Send a thank you note to the parent. Put some picture of children when they have fun during the trip. Ask the children in our daycare to write down their fun experience and give it to parents also can be a great part of our service.
