What parent's should know about quality child care

While these are all important questions, it is sometimes easy to forget to ask one simple question:
Is it a quality child care program?
The following 2008 NACCRRA publication link discusses quality child care. Read 38 Researched-Based Indicators of High-Quality Child Care.

High quality child care is an important element in having all children ready for school.
So What Should Parents Look For?
