  • Bridging the communication gap in the child care industry! We’re going to learn about bridging the gap and as Providers saw with our magic wand experience, we’re already laying down some planks., why did this all begin?
  • Tom Clark wanted to give back to the community that gave so much to him. He approached me after I left the publishing company to mock up some ideas of what we could do. He and Minute Menu said let’s go for it, so we sent out a survey in 2010 to thousands of family child care providers and thousands responded! Actually, the response rate was shocking. The survey name was “Help us, Help Providers” and over 17,000 family child care providers told us how they could be helped, and we listened.Every question had an open ended section and thousands of open ended comments were was built.The future… was created with the purpose to give back to the community. We have done that by providing a free resource, community and ever-growing knowledgebase to help people care for children. is taking that one step further. We are turning into a foundation. Our foundation is going to strengthen quality child care through health and wellness initiatives. We are in the legal stages of establishing the foundation and we are very excited about this. Among other things we will be providing competitive mini grants, contests and prizes to the child care industry. That means Providers, child care providers, CACFP sponsors, associations and other individuals and organizations that touch the child care world.
  • Youknowthe history, You know the future, now lets talk about the presentProviders asked for:A place where Providers could exchange or sell used items from Providers child care. Many providers said that they want to change up their child care environment so they want to sell or even exchange items. For example Providers want to change out Providers dramatic play area so Providers can trade with another provider doing the same thing. So we made the Child Care Classifieds/Exchange. Help with Meal Planning: Many many of Providers mentioned they had difficulty finding recipes that would be good for child care, or needed some assistance with other aspects of menu planning. So we have an entire section about meal planning. We have a recipe database, with over 400 recipes in it that users can search, comment on and review. There are menus that use these recipes that Providers can rate or comment on as well. Help with meal pattern requirements or even teaching kids about the food groups. Providers said anything that can help them save money, they want it…Providers said that they felt isolated. That it is hard to find providers doing the same thing as Providers, experiencing similar problems…we gave child care a community, with a forum and blogs and other ways to communicate with each otherProviders wanted to be able to find credible activity ideas or suggestions on how to set up a child care environment….we made Children’s PlaceProviders wanted resources to direct parents to so we made the parents page
