Quality Inclusive Child Care Checklist

Quality care provides a safe and healthy learning environment that supports the social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional development of all children. This checklist assists parents of children with disabilities or special needs in looking, listening and asking questions in the process of selecting the child care setting that best meets the needs of their child and family. It can also assist programs in identifying the necessary components of a quality inclusive child care setting as they evaluate their program and services provided.

CCHP Health and Safety Policies Checklist

The California Childcare Health Program Health and Safety Policies Checklist (2005) was developed to objectively assess written health and safety policies in early care and education programs. The Checklist can be used by child care providers or directors, child care health advocates, child care health consultants, health professionals, and researchers. It assesses the quality of written health and safety policies and helps child care and health professionals identify how to improve written policies and target interventions.

CCHP Health and Safety Checklist Summary

The CCHP Health and Safety Checklist Summary is designed to be completed after a health and safety assessment in an early care and education program is conducted using the CCHP Health and Safety Checklist-Revised. The Summary Form is organized by subscale and there are three columns to complete for each subscale: # of standards (items) which meet the National Standards, # of standards (items) which do NOT meet the National Standards, and action steps needed to meet the National Standards.   
 

CCHP Health and Safety Checklist

The Health and Safety Checklist is a 112-item tool developed to assess key health and safety standards and identify ways to improve health and safety in early care and education (ECE) programs. The Checklist includes 72 out of the 138 key health and safety standards in Stepping Stones Third Edition. The Checklist was reviewed by an advisory committee of health and safety experts and pilot tested by child care health consultants. The Checklist is user-friendly, easy-to-understand and has links to the Caring for Our Children standards and other related resources.
