CEMREL, Inc., St. Ann, MO.
Intended as an aid to program designers, developers, and policy makers, the more common elements or items found in the various state and federal day care guidelines are extracted and categorized. The set of variables for classifying the guidelines was developed by selecting standards from a sample of six states. The standards were classified into ten major variables, each category appearing as a chapter in the text. These chapters are as follows: I. Health Standards; II. Nutrition Standards; III. Fire and Safety Hazard Standards; IV. Staff Requirements; V. Records and Reports; VI. Parent Involvement; VII. Sanitation; VIII. Equipment; IX. Physical Facilities; and X. Curriculum and Program. A universal set of items used in categorizing day care guidelines is provided, as are a bibliography and a listing of state agencies. (DB)
