Are we able to share clothing? Does that conflict with Covid rules?
Rhonda Knowles
33:01
I make sure your name is in all your gloves, jackets , etc. Some children have the same articles of clothing.

Circle time is a great time to practice putting mittens on, getting the thumb in and singing “open, shut them”
Rhonda Knowles
37:06
As the weather changes. In advance you should send home a note or text to your parents to bring in articles of clothing you will need to be prepared for the outdoor weather.

Does anyone have inexpensive ideas for Home Based providers with limited resources?
Izzi Greenberg
45:54
Rhonda I’ll ask that
Laurel Leibowitz
49:10
I do believe it is mostly about adult mind set. We use the weather chart as out guide and go out every day except rain again having rain gear to wear would be necessary.

I CANNOT IMAGINE LETTING THE CHILDREN PLAY WITH MUD! WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOME CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE BOOTS OR OTHER APPROPRIATE CLOTHING/GEAR? ALSO, WHAT ABOUT THE PARENTS WHO DO NOT WANT THEIR CHILD TO PLAY WITH MUD - AND BELIEVE ME THERE ARE A LOT OF THEM!

I ask parents to bring in extra winter wears. I also go to goodwill and get extra winter apparel. I launder extra clothes as needed. I also send a newsletter out monthly reminding families we get messy and the importance of extra layers.

The ideas are all great. But you still have to be mindful that depending on the temperature outside. A Home based provider will have difficulty bringing a six week old outside without an assistant

Rhonda Knowles so true! maybe you can bundle the baby up and hold for just a small amount of time
Rhonda Knowles

I am fortunate enough to have my husband here with me . He is my substitute and assistant.
Rhonda Knowles
01:10:15
I was thinking of the providers not as fortunate as myself

I bring all of my older toys outside to put in my outdoor space. Blocks , trucks , strollers,
Rhonda Knowles
