Romano, Judith T.

The vast majority of young children spend time in settings outside of the home, and the nature of those settings directly impacts the child's health and development. The ecobiodevelopmental framework of early brain and child development serve as the backdrop for establishing quality. This article describes the use of quality rating systems, initiatives for systems building for early childhood settings, and the role of the pediatrician.
