Guidelines for Early Learning in Child Care Home Settings Language: English
Publisher: California Department of Education (2010)
Description: Recognizing that many children receive their early care and education in home-based settings, the CA Dept. of Education developed Guidelines for Early Learning in Child Care Home Settings specifically for family child care and exempt-care providers. This document covers the same topics as those in the Prekindergarten Guidelines (school and center based early learning guidelines), but it also addresses the specific concerns that home-based providers face every day as they strive to nurture and teach the children in their care. Additionally, it addresses the reality that many family child care and license-exempt providers serve infants and toddlers side by side with preschool-age children.
