Infant and Toddler Program Quality Review Instrument.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This program quality review instrument for California's infant and toddler programs focuses on seven functional program components. Components include: (1) philosophy, goals, and objectives; (2) administration; (3) maintenance of a developmental profile on each infant and toddler; (4) provision of a developmental program; (5) parent education and involvement; (6) community resources and involvement; and (7) program evaluation. In assessing the developmental program, the review instrument focuses on the nature of the learning environment; the caregiver's influence on the environment; health, nutrition, language and communication; and emotional, social, physical, cognitive, and creative development. Programs are assessed using indicators and items specified within the functional components, and are rated excellent, good, adequate, or inadequate. If inadequate, programs are required to submit a program improvement plan within 30 days of the program quality review. A glossary of terms used in the instrument is provided. (RH)
