Beyond the personalities, the location, and cost involved in childcare, the subtle glue that often binds together the framework of a daycare is in some respects the daycare supplies. While the parents or guardians are out handling one part of their busy lives, the daycare facilities act in some regards as a fill in parent and in doing so, the daycare supplies they use with, and around the children has the potential to make or break the relationship between the staff and the child. While slightly melodramatic to think about in such a light, in actuality daycare supplies from wipes and paper towels, to disinfectant spray and even snack food all comes in contact directly with the child at some point during their time in the care of a care giver. The irony of this is that without such daycare supplies such would be increasingly difficult and unpleasant. Daycare supplies are not limited to one or two products; rather the term daycare supplies is generally used as a broad term.
While used in a broad sense, the term daycare supplies does bring with it some real, and very specific items that can be utilized to keep a daycare facility operating at its peak potential. In reference to cleaning and sanitation, daycare supplies range from trashcan bags, disposable plates, bowls, and napkins to disinfectant spray, latex gloves for protection against bodily fluids, and bathroom cleansers. Such supplies help maintain a clean, and relatively germ free daycare facility. Yet where children notice, daycare supplies such as juices, good tasting and healthy snacks, and interactive equipment for them to play with is what often keeps the child active and compliant during his or her time at the daycare. The daycare supplies used by caregivers do make a difference, no matter how subtle that may seem.
