Performance Improvement 2011-2012. What Are The Range Of Initiatives Underway Or Recently Implemented To Support Home-Based Child Care?

01/01/2012

Researchers profiled a wide range of initiatives, either currently underway or recently implemented that support quality in home-based child care.

The study identified four types of initiatives according to their primary purpose: quality improvement, certificate program, support for licensing, and support for accreditation. Eighty of the initiatives in the compilation aimed to improve quality in home-based care. Some initiatives intended to enhance providers' support for a single development domain such as language or health. Seven of the initiatives aimed to help family, friend and neighbor caregivers become regulated providers. These initiatives provided information about establishing a child care business, offered training that complies with state regulatory requirements, and provided support for improving the home environment to meet state standards.
