When I was asked to write an article on what it takes to run a good child care program for children under the age of five, I thought “What an impossible question. I want to answer it!”
I think the answer, like most things of any worth, is that it takes a really good idea. The right idea. A good and right idea is a rare thing. It is like a key that opens every door. It’s a hand that guides you through the darkest place. It sorts the wheat from the chaff. You can return to it again and again and it never stops providing answers, inspiration and wisdom.
