Competency Statement I
(To establish and maintain a safe, healthy learning environment) In order to establish and maintain a safe, healthy learning environment I first begin with providing a clean and organized classroom. All toys and equipment are sanitized on a daily basis, all outlets are covered and all fixtures are mounted to the walls to prevent from tipping over. Upon entering the classroom every parent is required to sign a daily health check in which the teacher and the parent both assess the health of each child. Healthy meals and snacks are provided to each and every child, keeping in mind, the allergies that each child has. Medicines are also carried for each student that requires it on a daily basis. The classroom tables are wiped down and sanitized and the floor is swept after each meal. The children also brush their teeth after meals to help the children gain healthy brushing habits. The teacher child ratio is maintained at all times.
CS Ia- Upon reviewing the weekly menu I found that the menu was well balanced with all the components included. They offer a wide variety of proteins, vegetables, and fruits as well as a daily serving of dairy and starch. However, I found the menu to not be very child friendly. If I were in charge of the menu I would offer a more child friendly menu to the children with items that they are more likely to eat while still keeping the meals healthy. I would add entrees such as spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, sandwiches and ravioli’s. I would also try and offer more common vegetables to the children like corn, green beans, broccoli and carrots. Another change I would make is to switch up the starch a little and offer them brown rice and potatoes.
CS Ib- Upon reviewing the classroom environment I feel that the classroom is set up where the children can easily move from one center to another. The shelves are labeled allowing the children independence to clean up the areas on their own and also so the children know that

    Competency Statement I CS I a: I did not design the lunch menu for my center; however, I serve it to my children on a daily basis. We use the CRMC food service, which has many benefits.
