    It’s very good post! Congratulations! I really enjoyed to reading your blog. Thanks for share all this information. I’m looking forward your next post. Research shows that provider and caregiver training specific to the health and safety needs of young children can be effective, particularly when paired with follow-up, supports, and monitoring. Simple training and ongoing monitoring of diapering and hand washing practices, for instance, have been shown to reduce the incidence of illness.
