Handbook of Standards for Pre-School Group Day Care Centers.
New York City Human Resources Administration, NY.
The standards presented in this handbook are intended to serve as guidelines for the self-assessment of publicly funded preschool group day care centers. Each standard is accompanied by one or more indicators which suggest concrete ways in which that standard can be met. The handbook is divided into five sections. The standards in the first section deal with the program for children, focusing on program goals, planning, implementation and assessment. The second section presents standards related to parent involvement and social services, with specific emphasis on: (1) inquiries and applications for admission; (2) admissions; (3) orientation; (4) parent involvement in the child's participation in the program; (5) parent participation in planning and assessment; (6) parent participation in the administration of the program; (7) support services; and (8) terminations, breaks, or changes in services. The third section contains standards for community outreach. The fourth section presents health and nutrition standards, most of which reflect the requirements of governmental agencies for the provision of health and nutrition services. The standards in the last section focus on administration, with attention directed to the role of the provider and the role of the director. A glossary of terms and a list of references are also included. (JMB)
