This is an example of a video collage, which I put together weekly for parents; along with photos daily.
I primarily record free play, outdoor, & music time, because it's just me.
"When I think of you, I think how God has ordained for our paths to cross . Maybe I had to go through really bad daycare before to get to you. You have made me a better mom and woman. I have so much love and respect for you as a woman and mom and friend" ~ Roxanne

How I keep parents informed
Max is our daycare dog. He adores the children and the children love him. Having a daycare dog assists in teaching children love, respect, and responsibility towards animals. Max sleeps in his crate during the day; however, he does go out back every two hours. He's been trained to walk by the children, although occasionally they will get licked en route :-). Just like me, Max is fully state compliant :-)
We also have daycare cats. Indie is elderly, so she spends her day upstairs. Kookie (above) is a young one and has no qualms about spending times downstairs. The children are taught that Kookie is a non-touchable item so that they don't attempt to pull on her tail or do something that might cause her to be afraid of being downstairs.

This daycare protected by REOLINK security systems.
Because there is always a risk of a frivolous lawsuit or vindictive reporting should a parent be dismissed from my care, my daycare is monitored by a security system. This actually occurred a few years ago by a parent who filed a complaint with the state six months after departing my facility (on good terms) because he had difficulty with the IRS related to a child tax credit and claimed I refused to assist with it. Because he was angry with the IRS, he lashed out at my facility; so, having a security camera assists in debunking false reporting.
