The American Public Health Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics recently published health and safety guidelines for child care centers.
A survey was conducted to determine the extent to which practices in US child care centers are reflective of these guidelines.
Compliance with 16 guidelines ranged from 19.5% to 98.6%, varied considerably by state, and was not consistenly associated with selected center characteristics.
Prevention efforts should focus on practices for which compliance is low and on those that have the greatest disease-and injury-reducing potential.
