Find out and minimize ‘runways’
Some common mistake that made by daycare provider is not realize the existence of runways. Long and narrow spaces such as classroom aisle or open hallways can be a great area for children to running around. If you want to minimize the runways that may cause unexpected accident then you better break up the long and narrow space. You can try to rearrange the daycare furniture and adding some barrier. Set some seating area or small tables are also helpful for this.
Provide sufficient toys
Toys and children cannot be separated. That is the reason why some problem commonly arises when there are no sufficient toys. Children may make daycare provider stress because of quarrelling and debate about toys. You better provide toys that match with children interest and ages. The series of toys that need to provide are puzzle, Lego, games, ride or climb and etc.
Select toys that matched with children age and skill
You better provide toys that suited well with children age and skill. Infant for example will need toys that can be shake, drop, roll, mouth and explore with their body. Toddler, need the toys that can be fill, dump, pull, push, grab and yank. While preschool will need some complex material to keep their interest and boost their courage to learn new things.
Teach children on handling their toys
Before trying to use the toys, you better teach children how to handle it. Explain how to use or play with it. Let them also learn how to maintain the toys durability so that they can use it for a long time.
