Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
The Federal Government's position on the establishment and regulation of day care services in the United States is reported. The point is made that there are certain fundamental requirements and characteristics of children which every program must take into account. The most important of these basic needs include health and nutrition, security, freedom, structure, compassion, developmental differencies, and challenge. A day care program is responsible for the quality of service it delivers to its consumers. Program administrators have the responsibility of recruiting the best qualified staff who possess the necessary talent for the conduct of the programs. (CK)
