The Physical Environment of a Child Care Center: What Parents should Know
MetadataShow full item record
Use this brochure as a checklist to evaluate the quality of a child care center's physical environment, the building, the classroom, the outdoor area, and how it supports the program. The environment in which your child may spend up to ten hours per day is a very important place. The caregivers help make it a special place, but the physical characteristics also play a major role. The information applies to child care centers serving ages birth to five years old, and classrooms for three, four, and five year olds.
