Our backgrounds include experiences as child care pro- viders, licensors, child care administrators, and trainers.

Who This Manual Is For While traveling throughout the United States to make presentations at state and national conferences, we have met hundreds of individuals who provide services from their homes.

You might also be visited by Head Start and early intervention personnel; fire, building, and health and safety inspectors; mentors; Child Development Associate (CDA) monitors; licensors; accreditation and environmental rating COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL xiii
