What is an infant daily report?
Daily sheets are a way to connect with families by sharing an update on their child's time in care on paper or through a daycare daily app. A toddler daily take home sheet can be as detailed or brief as you'd like, but they often include details on the child's meals, potty breaks, nap times and learning activities. The daily report may also include notes to and from the parents so that the caregiver, home daycare provider or teacher can keep communication lines open with the family.
Some states and provinces may require preschool daily report sheets to be sent home with children at the end of each day. If you are in one of those states or provinces where these reports and mandated, make sure to download these free printable sheets or try sending home your reports with our daycare daily report app!
Why are daily reports important to families?
While the day-to-day might feel similar for you as a center owner or teacher, there are important learnings for parents in your daycare daily logs. For example, if their child is having trouble sleeping during naptime, or not eating their meals or snacks, consistent daily forms will help identify issues early on. You can also ask families for items they need to bring in so their child is prepared, such as diapers, wipes, or clothes.
Even when there are no issues to flag, toddler daily sheets can provide families with peace of mind that their baby or preschooler is getting the attention and care they need. Who doesn' t need a little reassurance now and then! It is a great way to daily connect and make the family feel in the loop.
Daily childcare forms are also a great opportunity to give positive news to families. If a toddler is having a happy day or learned a new skill, why not let families know in a note or attached picture to your daily activity report?
You can also have families add in their own notes to their preschool daily sheet, either at drop-off or at pick-up. For example, if an infant didn't sleep well last night, they can add a note to their baby daily log which will give the caregiver in their classroom context for their daily routine. Adding some details about your daily lesson plan and daycare daily schedule will also certainly be appreciated!
