Quality child care in focus: What parents should look for is a video designed for parents of young children in Canada. Filmed in a number of community-based non-profit and public child care centres, it “shows and tells” about the elements of good quality centre-based child care that parents should look for, beginning with the basics—regulation, health and safety, as well as the physical environment, programming, staffing, relationship with parents, and public management and public funding.
The video can be viewed in its entirety or in short topical segments. Available in English and French, as well as ASL and LSQ.
