During my

of Tender

which is an

program,
observed that
one teacher

children
between the
ages of #$%&
The teacher
was outside
on a large
play area
where
supervision
of that many
children to
one teacher is
difficult&

would also

seriously hurt&
would also
recommend that

Tender

During my
observation
of Tender

Care,
observed the

that they
appeared to
be

but at the
same time
they are not
following the
regulations
to separate
0uiet and

they do not
have a 0uiet
area where a
@ne of the
recommendations
that would ma*e
would be for Tender
Hearts to rearrange
their classrooms to
at least have a few
of the learning areas&
They need to
separate active and
0uiet play areas so
that children can
benefit from their
learning through
play& 2nother
recommendation
that would ma*e
would be for Tender
Hearts to add in
multi$cultural play
materials such as
multi$cultural dolls,
play food from
different cultures
such as Ae'ican,
Spanish, and so on&

there was no

not see any

2lso during

2lso during
my
observation
it appeared
that the nap
room had
nap cots the
would be too
close
together and
may not meet
the title ##
regulations
This would help
children from other
cultures feel valued
in the classroom and
it also ma*es them
feel that they are
important& They
could also add
wooden bloc*s,
hollow bloc*s, and
homemade bloc*s&
would also
recommend that they
review the
regulations for space
between nap cots in
the nap room to
ma*e sure they are
in compliance of the

During my
observation
of Tender

observed the
children
eating lunch&
The lunch
consisted of
hot dogs,
pic*les and
chips&
During my
observation,
observed the
posted menu
and observed
that Tender

not serve the
re0uired %

dairy, meat

also
observed that
the menu had

children grow
and develop
0uic*ly during
the early
childhood
years& They
rely on their
families and
teachers to
ensure that
they get
nutritious
foods they
need every
day& (lanning
healthy meals
that appeal to
children and
accommodate
their needs is a
*ey
component of
this
responsibility&
This goal is
considered so
important in
early
childhood
settings that a
variety of
established
re0uirements
must be met
for licensed
programs and
those funded
by state of
federal
agencies
(Sorte,

2ccording to
my
observations
Tender hearts
child care is
not in
compliance
with the Title
## regulation
!3!##5 Food
Service&
Tender
Hearts is not
only not in
compliance
with the Title
##
regulations
but they are
setting these
children up
with bad
eating habits&
The children
are not
getting the
proper
nutrition
inta*e and
due to
serving high
fat and sugar
foods, the
children are
at ris* for
developing
diseases such
as type #
diabetes,
heart disease,
high blood
pressure and
more& Child
care centers
and teachers
really need to
2 recommendation
that would highly
ma*e is to have the
director of Tender
Hearts re$evaluate
the menus& would
suggest that the
center create a
rotating menu that
has the five food
group components
for lunch and the
two components for
snac*& would
recommend that they
ta*e out the high fat
and sugar foods and
add more variety of
healthy food to their
menu& would
recommend that the
director and the staff
ta*e some nutrition
courses or trainings
so that they have the
*nowledge to plan
and provide
nutritious meals for
the children& For
some children they
receive their
nutrition at school so
it is very important
that the meals
provided are healthy
and provide the
proper nutrition&
would also
recommend that the
center print their
menus and post
them in :nglish and
Spanish so that the
parents can read
what their children
are going to be
