Philosophy of Care
With an unwavering commitment to family centered care, USABratts vision is to provide a high-quality, safe, nurturing and culturally-sensitive environment that supports a collaboration between professional caregivers, and families.
Principles of Family Centered Care:
Dignity and Respect for the Family: We listen to you and your family. Your values, beliefs and cultures are incorporated into the planning and delivery of child care.
Complete and unbiased information sharing in ways that are affirming and useful: We create an atmosphere where two-way information is shared openly and candidly among families and caregivers.
Family participation in child care planning and delivery to provide enhanced control and independence: We welcome and encourage your participation in your child's care and care planning.
Families As Partners
At USABratts, we're reaching out to families. We are asking you to be our partners – partners in caring for your children, partners in making policies and guiding practices and most importantly, partnering for a safe nurturing environment.
Viewing family members as essential allies has changed the way we take care of children. Parents and other family members are natural advocates for their children. You understand your child's needs in ways that go deeper than family centered child care. Simply put, you know what's best for your child.
Partnering with families is one of the most important things we do at USABratts. Many of our changes and improvements have been made based on direct advice from our partners. Some have been driven by our response to the influence they bring to bear. We are grateful to each and every one and realize that we are just beginning to be a better organization because of partners like you.
