A Comparative Analysis of Day Care Licensing Standards.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Head Start Research and Evaluation Center.
This report focuses on the major similarities and differences of three sets of day care licensing standards (model, state, and federal) in order to provide an information base for isolating the problems, concerns, and issues involved in day care licensing. Sets of standards compared are: (1) "OCD Guides for Day Care Licensing," 1973 (model); (2) "Rules and Regulations Governing Group Day Care Centers" and "Rules and Regulations Governing Family Day Care Homes" used by the state of Hawaii since 1966; and (3) "Federal Interagency Day Care Requirements" (1968). Part 1 lists major issues and concerns (in question form) grouped under these major headings: (1) the act itself (title, purpose, and definition of terms), including application, development, and enforcement of rules and regulations; (2) administration, program, staffing, and parent participation requirements; (3) health and sanitation requirements; and (4) fire and safety requirements. A brief summary is included. Part 2 (comprising three-quarters of the report) contains four charts grouped under the same headings. The charts present the provisions of each set of standards so that specific regulations may be compared across standards. Summaries follow each chart. (ED)
