Sections in the checklist are: (1) "Caregivers: How Many Children Is Each Caregiver Responsible For?"; (2) "Emotional Development and Discipline"; (3) "Play Activities," including toys, safety, space, cleanliness, and comfort considerations; (4) "Facility Operation and Policies"; (5) "Safety"; (7) "Management Policies"; and (8) "Warning Signs of Poor Child Care," which include feelings of uneasiness, children's dislike or fear of a caregiver, and inaccessibility of caregiving areas when visiting the site.
