My space has become a more integrated child care setting. Having children of my own I prefer a separate setting. Benefits of separate space are a plus to me. It helps with cleaning and is a little less stressful. This is true for me especial when you don’t want personal items broken and you don’t have to constantly remind the children about what they shouldn’t touch or what room not to go in. For myself It gives me the feel of being able to see both differently. I am a person that doesn’t like clutter. So combining both puts my mind into overdrive.
