High Quality Child Care: How to Identify.
Ericson, B. Kay; Richardson, Beverlee
The purpose of this article is to aid parents in selecting high quality child care. A systematic method for identifying high quality child care focuses on three major program areas: the physical, learning, and teaching environments. The discussion helps parents become aware of appropriate questions about the physical environment, become familiar with the components of a learning environment which includes children's activities, and gain an understanding of the importance of trained, qualified staff. An accompanying checklist provides parents with a framework for identifying high quality child care. (Author/RH)
