Generic Checklist for Day Care Monitoring.
Children's Services Monitoring Transfer Consortium.; Gibson-Hunt Associates, Washington, DC.
This guide presents the results of research on day care monitoring methods conducted by the Children's Services Monitoring Transfer Consortium. It suggests a set of generic predictor items that can be used to monitor day care providers' compliance with standards. The predictor items are at the licensing or minimal compliance level and have been found to be consistently significant predictors. The checklist covers the following areas in a child care program: administration, staff qualifications, environmental safety, health, and nutrition. The selected items also appear to have high face validity when compared with national day care standards. Information about the checklist is presented in two sections. The first section lists and discusses the items that research shows to be generic indicators of compliance with day care standards. The second section suggests ways for using the generic items in a monitoring program. In addition, an appendix briefly discusses related research and provides guidance for obtaining further information. (RH)
