Apart from a good basic education and a love for teaching, handling children requires a lot of endurance and patience on the part of a daycare provider; besides, with new-age theories being brought in daily about child-rearing and teaching methods, there is bound to be controversy over what is a good measure of deciding facilities beneficial for childcare. This is why it is important for any aspiring daycare provider to know about the fundamentals of caring for different age groups of children and also about special needs any particular child may have, be it a baby or toddler or a pre-schooler.

Every state has a licensing board that outlines the basic training that a daycare provider (director and teaching staff) needs to complete in order to get the required license to practice as a childcare facility support. They also must get and maintain a national certification in First-Aid and pediatric CPR to ensure safety and emergency medical aid for children in their care at all times; this cannot be emphasized enough in the case of the daycare provider practicing away from a healthcare facility where ambulance may take time to reach, therefore swift, capable action is necessary on their part to keep children safe and healthy.

The Red Cross holds training sessions in emergency medical aid besides local hospitals and healthcare centers apart from the fire dept. so check with these if you are keen to become a daycare provider and get the necessary minimum training for better chances at getting employed as one.
