A Place Of Our Own is designed to meet the needs of childcare providers from babysitters to mothers of young children to early care providers - anyone who cares for young children can benefit from this daily program.
Through advice from fellow childcare providers and experts in childcare development, A Place Of Our Own teaches methods to help children acquire cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills. This program also helps childcare providers teach children the vital first steps in reading and language development.
Each program focuses on a specific topic ranging from issues of early childhood, such as temper tantrums and sibling rivalry, to adult concerns with daycare accreditation and children’s health insurance. In each episode, a panel of fellow childcare providers shares their insights and advice on how to solve the current issue, and experts advise the audience on the psychology behind children’s behavior, the government standards on daycare, and effective childhood education. The overarching goal of this program is to provide childcare providers with the tools to raise happy, healthy kindergartners.
The accompanying website includes lists of national resources for childcare providers, a guide to past and future episodes, and tips from the week’s childcare providers and experts, and clips from recent videos. The website is available in both English and Spanish.
