Local Decorah child care provider Matt Tapscott joins Dragonfly Books to talk about his new book When I Send My Child to Child Care. Written with Denise Tapscott, When I Send My Child to Child Care utilizes simple photos and straightforward concepts to outline some of the key quality indicators all high-quality childcare and early learning programs need to demonstrate in their care environments. Everyone is invited to join Matt Tapscott at Dragonfly books as he shares stories, talks about his book, and sign books on Tuesday, April 17 at 7:00 pm.

Matt Tapscott and Denise Tapscott have provided childcare in regional centers and in a nationally accredited child development home. They have cared for newborns through school-age children and taught childcare business classes to providers, presented workshops at state and regional conferences, and advocated politically for improvements to the childcare delivery system.

When I Send My Child to Child Care is a user-friendly resource to help families make choices for their childcare needs. Highlighting actual childcare environments and addressing topics such as transitions, guidance, nutrition, and hygiene, When I Send My Child to Child Care is a resource to be utilized by parents and shared with caregivers.
