The regulatory status of center-based infant and toddler child care.
Ten years ago, a review of U.S. center-based infant and toddler care found that not even one state met federally recommended standards of quality with regard to group composition, staff training, and program of care.
The present analysis indicates that little progress has been made since then.
While most states currently require centers to follow appropriate practice guidelines, standards for staff training were rated as unacceptable in almost all states.
Findings are discussed in terms of the interrelation of quality dimensions and the ongoing importance of improved state-level infant and toddler child-care regulation.
