Feedback for in-home daycare

Our 8 month old has been in an in-home daycare since she was about 6.5 months old, which runs like a bigger daycare. We LOVE it and our little lady likes it too (besides all the colds she catches... building up her immunity, right?) The ages of kids there range from infants to early preschool age.

Instead, teachers should be giving visual cues to get the class to be quiet and listen (which teaches young children how to read the room and use non verbal cues to modify their behavior) or indirect cues like, “it’s very hard to hear directions when it’s so loud in this room” (which allows...

    There are so many other things I’d find more inappropriate! Shut up, STFU but zip it really doesn’t fall on that list. Sometimes kids do need to be to told to shut up and this is a nice way of doing it
