What should I look for in a teacher´s behaviour?

Teaching by Example

Children learn by imitation, and that means they can learn something harmful, as easily as something useful or fun -- and in the earlier years, they cannot distinguish between the two. That's why it's important to refrain from doing anything in front of your child that you don't want your child to do (i.e., taking medicine, smoking, holding pins in your mouth, etc.). This extends to your care provider as well. Be attentive when in the company of your care provider to be sure they realize this as well. And that your standards are similar.
