Why should unions want their members to become enrolled with S&D Instructional Services?
S&D offers solutions to early child care providers not available anywhere else. We recognized, early on, there are many resources available to providers which focus solely on the care of young children. Unfortunately there are very few resources designed to help providers care and protect their businesses.
In every state the number of individuals who choose this profession is rapidly diminishing. An increasing number of providers, who have operated successful businesses for many years, are simply giving up. In some states the number of licensed family child care providers has been cut in half! Ironically in states, where the intention is to elevate the quality of early child care; unregulated home based care is beginning to outnumber licensed facilities. For those of us who have a deep rooted and long standing respect for this special type of care, this trend is alarming.
Unions representing early child care providers have an important stake in helping to assure that this trend is reversible. The delivery of quality child care along with a robust, pro-active approach to protecting and advocating for these small businesses are not mutually exclusive. The staff at S&D Instructional Services believes educating providers in all aspects of the new and ever changing early child care landscape will benefit all providers along with the organizations that support and work with them
The tools and strategies available on our website were specifically designed for family child care. Many of these tools were created to help providers avoid grievances and/or confrontations. Our goal is to offer providers professional solutions to many of the issues they confront on a daily basis.
