Daycare existence is showing its important role in child development. The demand for places where we can leave our children safely when we are busy to work get higher. The number of daycare is also arises so that we need to make a new approach to differentiate us with another. The example of effective approach is well organized of children’s activities. As the provider, we should provide various games for kids in our daycare so that they can choose which one that they prefer. However, we need to make a well organized child care activity to make children possible to get desired extracurricular activities. We also need to provide supporting educational tools that make the lesson going more smoothly. Our daycare will be great if we can complete the lesson time with audiovisual media. This kind of tools will make children possible to see the image and object rather than just imagining the abstract object. The usage of this supporting tool will show our total care toward children educational achievement.
A few years before, we may only see most daycare teach the alphabet, number or other type of basic skill by using flash card or write it down in a whiteboard. Nowadays, being professional means we can use more sophisticated audio visual tools in our business. We can simply use various high tech tools like CD, DVD player, Television, computer and etc to make children more easily absorb the lesson in the daycare. Visualize lesson also become more interesting to children. In fact, children’s memory still has a limitation to remembering things. When we are using this kind of tools in our daycare then we can make children easier to memorize things. We can simply download many kinds of basic skills teaching and turn it on the computer. Just be sure that the lesson we are downloading for our daycare is suitable for children age. The teaching ways may be similar but it will have a different difficulty level for each age.
Another innovation in daycare teaching approach is the outdoor trips. The outdoor plan can be held in such places like museum, garden, sanctuaries and etc. Outdoor trips make children possible to understand the aspect of wildlife and nature environment. Later on, children are possible to use the experiences that they have during the trip to learn many new things. This kind of service rarely found in many daycare. This kind of field trip is great to make children easier to get idea from visual experience rather than just imagining the things. Another benefit of this outdoor trip in day care preschool is building relationship with peers. Children get better bonding by doing group work. To accomplish the job, children will be urged to work together with other children in the daycare. This kind of field trip will make children possible to develop their socialize skills because they get wider connected outside their family. For the detail above, we can simply conclude that it needs more than just a license to determine a daycare is good or not but more emphasize on their learning approach.
