Since the proposed budget has come into a deficit, there is a need to balance the budget of the proposed program to enhance the financial sustainability of the project.
Method to balance the Proposed Budget
One of the methods employed to balance the budget is to calculate the revenue realized from children based on the current child/daycare ratio 8:1. The paper adjusts the entire child/daycare ratio to 8:1 as being revealed in the appendix 2. To adjust child/daycare ratio to 8:1, the paper divides the number of children by employee. The adjustment is necessary because the ratio for child/childcare in appendix 1 is unrealistic. For example, in March, in the appendix 1, the number of children is 146 while the number of daycare is 25. Thus, the ratio of child/employee in March will be 5.84:1. This ratio is unrealistic since it is impossible to get human with total number of…
Daycare Inclusion Support Plan: Punjabi Heritage Background
In order to most successfully begin the inclusion process of a 3- to 5-year-old Punjabi child into a standard daycare facility located in the Brisbane Metropolitan Area, one must first understand all the facets of the Punjabi culture that may prove relevant in making the child's transition into the daycare one that is as smooth as possible. In order to begin the process of inclusion, facility workers must not only understand the child's background and heritage, but also the factors of the Punjabi culture that may be easily included into the workings of the daycare facility, such as food and music, in order to make the child more comfortable, which in turn will allow the child to assimilate more quickly. In fully understanding the Punjabi heritage, as well as resources that exist within Brisbane to aid the understanding of this heritage, a more…

She ended the activity session by asking the group "OK, who wants to play bouncy ball again?" (referring to inflatable toys with handles meant for riding) and most of the children responded very enthusiastically.
At the same time, the caretaker approached the two children who seemed more interested in continuing their computer game activity and gently asked them if they wanted to play bouncy ball again. At that time, she indicated to me that she purposely tried to end activities (like the computer games) before any of the children bored of it themselves, which she said kept the children in better spirits and also facilitated their cooperation and interest in the computer games on subsequent days. Both children agreed to put away their computers and lined up single file to exchange a computer for a soft protective helmet. The caretaker explained to me that the purpose of the lining up…

As part of my work for this psychology class, I chose to volunteer at a local daycare center. I had never worked with children before, so seeing how young children interacted with one another on a daily basis was useful in demonstrating how the concepts I learned about development were reflected in people's everyday experiences. It is very easy to forget the long, sometimes painful process of learning and socialization that is required for a child to enter adulthood. Aspects of normal, social adult relations like sharing, self-censoring, and respect for others are very clearly socially learned and socially located behaviors, as I witnessed when…

Daycare on Children
Effects of Day Care on Children
The outcomes of children are greatly influenced by the various environments encountered by them, most importantly family and child care settings. This is the reason why there has been an increasing interest in research concerning the consequences of child care experiences on the development of children. The experiences at day care not only promote school readiness skills in children but the quality of playgroup child care experiences also influence the cognitive and social skills in children during the preschool years, through the switch to school, and into the elementary school years (Peisner-Feinberg, 2004).
Such concerns hold significant importance because children who are unsuccessful in acquiring basic skills at an early age are not capable enough to negotiate life effectively as grown-ups. Such kids find inadequate opportunities for progression as they are not prepared for the world of work. esearchers suggest that…

esearch has found that children who go to daycare everyday and have to stay for long hours often become aggressive and don't mind adults well (Weitzman, 2006). They become uncooperative. Many of them get clingy because they are insecure. One author says that the children suffer "psychic distress" when they are constantly separated from their parents. Their health suffers because of so many children being all in one small space. Lice and ringworm are problems and other infectious diseases that children catch in daycare that they would not be exposed to at home. One study (Kay, 2005) showed stress levels are higher in daycare children who have higher levels of cortisol in their bloodstreams. There is also anecdotal evidence (like my grandmother's "evidence") that children in daycare bite each other in epidemic proportions. Biting is animal behavior. It implies a need for self-protection. Probably, children that bite don't feel…

Effects of Long-term Daycare Setting on Children
With the increasing number of women in today's workforce, the number of working mothers with children proportionally grows. Statistics show that more than 40% of working mothers are bringing their young children to daycare centers. Hence, daycare becomes a trend for working mothers who need other's provision of care for their young children. This trend, however, is not totally accepted by parents, neither by those who bring their child to other's care. Most parents with a child at daycare are not entirely at ease while at work. Usually, some keep worrying about the situation of their child, how the child are being taken care of, and how their child feels about being in the care of others.
The issue of how daycare settings affect a child's development has been studied by many child experts and psychologists. Diverse factors such as the amount…

Defense of Early-Life Daycare
In today's economy, it is increasingly commonplace for families to budget based on the income of two breadwinners. The result is an increased need for daycare services for children of an increasingly younger age. This pattern has incited alarm among parenting advocacy groups, many of which have expressed concern that this trend could have negative psychological and sociological consequence as well as a deleterious impact on the family unit as a whole. Such concerns raise the question as to whether or not it is appropriate or healthy to place children under the age of five in daycare settings. Much of the research which we have encountered suggests that in fact it is healthy -- and in the right environment, even for very young children -- to experience this level of socialization prior to formal schooling.

Daycare centers are lifesavers for many families, and are especially helpful for working single mothers. The bonding between parent and child during infancy and toddler years is of the utmost importance; however, children who spend some time in daycare centers are not necessarily deprived of this love and affection. Rather, mothers who work will feel even more willing to care for and nurture their children after returning home from work, after a long absence from the baby. Moreover, the people who run daycare centers are extremely capable, professional people who can keep young children happy and entertained throughout their visit; the unfortunate incidents of trauma and abuse in daycare centers is the exception to the rule. Finally, Biblical arguments are irrelevant in this issue: not all parents ascribe to the Bible, and furthermore, child raising transcends the teachings contained within that book.

I have heard many employees in my company and in the building complaining about having to drop their children off to daycare early before work and then pick them up late after work. They have to pay additional fees if their child is not picked up on time, because they are stuck in traffic.

Organizational Values of Child Care Centers
Daycare or child care is one of the most important decisions parents will make regarding their children. Traditionally child care was done in the home by the mother while father went out into the world to support his family. Due to cultural, social, and economic factors that has slowly changed. ecent times have seen an increase in women taking jobs outside the home but children must be cared for, resulting in a rise of daycare facilities. The daycare industry has been continually emerging to cater to the needs of these parents.
Daycare centers exist for the sole purpose of caring for children. Their purpose is to ensure children's needs are met physically, emotionally, mentally, and developmentally. Daycare workers primarily deal with making sure that children receive the same amount of care that they have when they are at home. Daycare facilities should be able…

KinderCare Learning Centers is an institution owned by Knowledge Universe, which provides early childhood education and childcare. According to Kinder Care (2015), its first facility, Kinder Care Nursery School, was opened in 1969 to meet the increasing demand for preschool childcare at a time when more women were entering the workforce. Its primary objective was to use economies of scale to provide child care in bulk but in 1970, it changed its name to KinderCare Learning Centers in order to diversify to childhood education. Currently the company owns over 1600 early childhood education community centers and approximately 600 educational programs. Knowledge Universe (2014) states that more than 200,000 children ranging from six weeks to twelve years olds are enrolled in the community-based centers, of which 500 are accredited by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC)…

Serving the preschool/PreK age group is very important because this is where the foundation starts with the little ones. It is important to make sure that they are equipped with a center that has all the right resources and new technology. Serving this age group is significant because they are easily taught at this age and can retain a lot of information. This center will be built in mind with the fact that the preschool/PreK age group are more knowledgeable people. This is because children are, by nature, very curious. Even with all the questions they ask, as an educator, finding these answers on books and on the internet appears to be something that is very important. Children make adults well-informed people because as kids often expect for teachers to know exactly what they…
Daycare Benefits for Employees
In the age of the two-parent income, it is clear to see that working parents need safe, reliable and affordable child care for their children. And yet, parents are having difficulty finding care that meets their needs. hy? The answer is threefold: Availability, affordability and quality. These challenges exist because child care is labor-intensive, and high-quality child care is even more so due to the salary and benefits needed to attract and retain qualified staff and the teacher-to-child ratios required by law. (Yang 112)
There are three challenges that parents confront in finding high-quality child care: If care is available and affordable, often it is not of high quality. If child care is available and of high quality, it is often unaffordable. Finally, given the more intense teacher-to-child ratios for infants, many community programs do not offer infant care for financial reasons, further increasing the challenge…

It shows that historically mothers have typically had help raising their children, but that until recent times, that help typically came from close relatives, not programs outside the home designed for profit. The paper looks at the research and concludes that there are important differences between some day care centers and others. The best programs allow children to develop emotionally and behaviorally and produce children who are well prepared for later academic success. The research also identifies a specific group of children who would benefit from quality day care because such programs would enrich their background and better prepare them for school, but that the best programs are expensive and out of the reach of the families whose children might benefit the most from them.

While this federal oversight provides regulatory consistency and quality control, it may also be impeding the fullest possible effectiveness of community-based service contexts. According to the study in question, "Although GPs acknowledged carers' need for emotional support, only minimal levels of other interventions such as day care (12%) and psychotherapeutic interventions (12%) were prescribed. Reasons for under-use included non-availability and carers' reluctance to undergo psychotherapy. Lack of integrated community care services, insufficient information on services, lack of collaboration between health professionals and the frequent absence of a reliable carer were considered the most important barriers to the effective support of people with dementia in primary health care settings." (p. 317)
This confirms the general observation drawn from the preset research that while there are clear benefits to the employment of any form of daycare, community agencies often lack the resources or protocol to ensure that patients are given the best opportunity for the improvement of faculties as well as the improvement of long-term health outcomes.
Organizational Motivation Leadership
Effective and positive leadership is a basic foundation for any administrative institution to yield good results and therefore cause a great impact.
In this study we base our focus on a critical organization which is the infant daycare.
Infant daycare organization
Infant daycare centers are organizations that focus on the welfare of the child by providing care while the parent goes to work or gets engaged in other activities that may not allow the mother of father to be around the child during the day. The state requires that such organizations meet certain standards of safety, health and that the staff should have proper training. These institutions are normally equipped with fun toys and learning materials with the qualified caregivers trying as much as they can to make the life of infants as comfortable as possible. With the many challenges that infants face including having to master…

Steps to establishing
The anxiety that difficulties in juggling family and work tasks can negatively affect worker presentation has led some employers to offer on-site child-care or add family leave to benefit packages. If such initiatives, employers have assumed, reduce friction between family responsibilities and work demands, then worker productivity should increase and unexcused absenteeism and unnecessary turnover should decrease (randon & Temple, 2007).
Employer enefits of Providing on-site Child Care
Keeping up a population of skilled, industrious workers is a recurrent challenge for employers. For working parents, their challenge is frequently related to obtaining convenient, quality child care solutions. Today, a lot of employers are addressing this work-life challenge and have started offering child care benefits that sustain the work/life balance of workers. and, in spite of budget crunches and space limitations that many companies face today, there are many options to meet the needs and budgets of employers both large and…

This paper investigates the potential benefits of implementing a family-supportive policy, such as employer-sponsored child care, to enhance organizational policies. There is a lack of present research on this topic, and this paper contributes a consideration of the availability of organizational policies relating to employees' work-family balance and work-related outcomes in a nontraditional-hour workplace. It examines the existing literature and household employment configurations, including single and dual-career employees making strategic child care decisions. The Map of the Child Care Assistance Territory provides a model for considering the independent variables of household employment configuration, use of familial care, and dependent-care profile.
Benefits to Employers. (2011). Retrieved from http://www.cclc.com/employers/benefits-employers
Approximately 9% of employers provide on-site or near-site child care centers; 11% of employees say they work for employers who do so. And specialized child care programs, such as backup child care, priority access or tuition discount programs offer employees a potentially nationwide, equitable benefit outside the scope of a dedicated child care center. Companies that invest in dependent care support services realize huge savings as a result of reduced absenteeism and higher employee productivity and retention.
Likewise, McCain (2003) reports that, "The United States is a dog-loving nation. The American Veterinary Medical Association says about 36% of U.S. households own dogs, compared with 31% that own cats. The most popular breeds, the American Kennel Club says, are Labrador retrievers, golden retrievers and German shepherds" (2). According to the Southwest Boston Dog Owners' Group (2007), "The number of licensed dogs in Boston is 8,500; Animal Control estimates the total number of dogs in the city is 40,000" (Petition to Boston City Council and Mayor's office 4).

When we first installed a computer system in 1995, it was strictly used to maintain information, financial records, employment information, and to generate printed material. We upgraded to Internet connectivity and email capabilities in 1997 but email was not used that often for direct communication with clients. We constructed our website in 1998 and at that time, we provided a contact us link that was initially intended to be use primarily by prospective clients.
Almost immediately, we noticed that some of our clients started using that link to contact us for routine communications. At that time, most of our e-mail exchanges came from clients' business computer systems because while many professional businesses had already implemented Internet connectivity, comparatively fewer private individuals and families had yet moved to computer communications at home. In between 1999 and 2000, we noticed a dramatic increase in the use of email for routine communications and inquiries from our existing clients and we upgraded our network system to be able to handle the increased volume of email communications.
Now that email communication has become the primary means of communication besides the cellular telephone, we have changed many of our procedures to make sure that we exploit that medium to its full potential. We provide our customers with an electronic email newsletter and we frequently use email to provide supplemental information as necessary. We also give our clients the option of receiving their billing information online only, for which we give a nominal discount to support the global environment and because it would reduce our overhead if we could gradually convince all of our clients to go paperless. Communication via email offers instantaneous transmission of critical information in a format that also allows us to delay responding to routine exchanges. That is tremendously helpful to us in comparison to telephonic communications because they require a real-time response whether the nature of the communication is critical or merely routine.

Statistics make a compelling case: "savings in wages of $150,000 and $250,000 for just two companies that provided on-site day care" underline the advantage of retention and company loyalty through corporate daycare (Hahn 2007). orkers will be less apt to stay home when they cannot find care or a sitter -- also they can monitor a mildly ill child at the facility, rather than stay home. For women, corporate daycare levels the playing field and means they do not have to choose between motherhood and a career.

Fundamentally, hygiene factors are required to make sure a worker is not dissatisfied. Motivation factors are desired to motivate a worker to higher performance. Herzberg also further classified peoples actions and how and why they do them, for instance, if one performs a work related action because they have to then that is ranked as movement, but if one performs a work related action because they want to then that is ranked as motivation (Scheid, 2010).
The principles of Herzberg's Motivation-Hygiene theory have been applied to a wide variety of factors influencing worker satisfaction. These factors comprise: working circumstances, quality of supervision, salary, status, security, company, job, company policies and interpersonal associations (Two Factor Theory -- Herzberg, Frederick, 2011). In the application of Motivation-Hygiene theory to this study of employee attendance and satisfaction, the factor that will be looked at is that of onsite childcare programs.

Moreover, recent welfare reforms have focused on work requirements and lifetime limits on public assistance, which increasingly necessitate the provision of childcare to low-income families. The state distinguished 27 classes of child care service, based on age of child, hours of care per day, and size of the child care provider. For each of seven geographic areas in the state, a maximum subsidized fee for one day's care for each class of service was specified. If a provider's fee was less than this amount the state paid the fee, while if a fee exceeded this maximum, the state paid the maximum and the client was responsible for the difference. Eligible households had their choice of child-care providers. Although the subsidy payment was often made directly to a provider, the subsidy was on behalf of a particular client. Many clients were required to provide a co-payment, which depended on family income…

Despite this news, she continues to live her life and if worse comes to worse, she will adopt. In addition to this strength, she also accepts people as they are. When I encountered difficulty finding a daycare that would accept a child with a cleft palate, Lisa had no problems with this at all. She had no experience but was willing to learn. My son started attending that daycare when he was 10 months old, now he is 3 years old,…

Like it or not, education is also integrally connected to politics and the nation's political life. Monitoring the impact of national legislation, like No Child Left Behind, on how Americans view education as well as local changes in certification of teachers and daycare facilities and how this will impact staffing and financing the center is a must. Examining changes in what parents want from daycare centers, based on shifting demographics, requires educators to read popular literature as well, such as Parenting magazines and other magazines that might be read by users of the center.
Tracking changes in literature and trends written for children, like the Harry Potter series, or new multicultural offerings ensures that student's passions and interests will be aroused in the lesson…
The aged can also be accommodated near the bottom of the building, with low-impact aerobics and other targeted activities offered here. The medical and emergency facilities should also be incorporated close to these locations.
Young children, on the other hand, can be accommodated closer to the top floor of the facility, as they should have no difficulty accessing the higher levels of the building. Employees should be trained in providing them with adult supervision while they take part in the activities here. wimming pools of various sizes and depth levels can be included in this location. Daycare facilities can also be located on this floor, or close to it. It is important to include an intercom system from the children's and daycare floors, so that parents can be notified instantly if a child is in need of direct parental intervention. Baby changing rooms, and breastfeeding space can also be provided…

level of communication it takes to handle a case where a child has multiple disabilities. A transdisciplinary approach is useful in allowing professionals to collaborate and ask for help should the client or the client's parent require it. Handling a child with multiple disabilities is an arduous process. It involves use of equipment, proper handling, and consistent therapy that cannot be done in a multidisciplinary setting. Well, it can be done, but not as successfully as in a transdisciplinary setting.
Connecting the material back to earlier information read, open-ended interview questions help collect information from a parent more than simple questions. It is so important during the initial stage of a case to understand what the child goes through each day and how the parent handles the child. While this part may seem difficult by asking open-ended questions, it provides the kind of information that will be needed by everyone…

Also, there would be no related resentment issues in terms of Paula's additional training or supervision responsibilities. In terms of the employee viewpoint, this solution would probably be easier for George to implement, as only Paula's potential resentment will have to be handled, rather than the resentment of multiple employees.
In addition to a penalty system, it could also be a good idea to implement a reward system for excellence in performance. This would encourage employees to perform to the best of their ability while reducing any resentment as related to race or unfair treatment.
Although more costly in terms of financial investment, the solution of transport is chosen as the best option in terms of the least disruption. Furthermore, the advantage is that the transport solution can be implemented for other workers who also face Paula's situation. This would improve the company's image as one that is concerned…

ood indicates that "everyone has different motivations and aspirations that they wish to achieve in their life. ork-life balance is about adjustments that can be made to working patterns to enable people to combine work with the other facets of their life. Bratton and Gold (2003: 105) de-ne work-life balance as, 'the relationship between the institutional and cultural times and spaces of work and non-work in societies where income is predominantly generated and distributed through labour markets.'" (p. 388) This implicates various aspects of one's working experience, including the manner in which one's responsibility's are balanced with one's personal needs; the degree to which social needs are constructed within the workplace; and the manner in which the employer goes about providing opportunities for attendance of personal needs for employees. This definition is also underscored by the basic assumption that employee morale and work/life balance are inextricable and that, additionally, these…

He has been expelled from three school since he began his education and is currently attending junior high school after last attending a small charter school in his community. The shoplifting incident also caused his mother to ask his father to take him back into his home, he has lived with mostly his mother with infrequent visitation from his father, except for a year period where he lived with his father and stepmother and their other children, which ended at age 12 when he tried to vocalize feelings of concern about puberty to his stepmother and she perceived the conversation as deviant and asked that he be returned to his mother.

Jack used some elements of guilt surrounding his hospitalization in an attempt to persuade his mother to get him a treat at the cafeteria. This attempt to maintain control over his mother is appropriate to this developmental age according to Erickson's stages of development, and Donna easily managed his request by explaining that his diet was restricted prior to surgery. Jack was able to accept this answer, but continued to request assurances he would obtain the treat later in the day. Jack responded appropriately to all staff requests and his behavior appeared age appropriate and unremarkable. He maintained eye contact with staff and initiated conversation on several occasions.
The staff provided some coloring books and paper for Jack once he was confined to his bed in preparation for surgery. Jack appeared to be able to manage crayons without difficulty and easily wrote his name in block capital letters which were…
