Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of the Legislative Auditor.
This report focuses on the legal framework governing the operations of child care centers and family day care homes in the state of Hawaii. The scope, adequacy, and effectiveness of these regulations in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of young children are reviewed. A secondary focus is the management of the child care regulatory program by the Department of Social Services and Housing. Chapter 1 states the objectives and scope of the study and outlines the organization of the report. Chapter 2 provides background information on child care and its regulation nationally and in Hawaii, and chapter 3 discusses some principles relating to government regulation and the adequacy of child care regulations. The management of the child care regulatory program by the Department of Social Services and Housing is examined in chapter 4. Chapters 5 and 6 assess, respectively, the effectiveness of Chapter 892 (the laws for licensing child care centers and group day care homes) and Chapter 891 (laws issued for the licensing of family day care homes). A summary of the report is provided in chapter 7. (DST)
