This study aims to compare the newly - revised and previous versions of ChildcareGuidelines for Daycare Facilities to investigate “Health” section and “Health and Safety”based on what can be read from the new guidelines to gain fundamental data that willcontribute to future childcare at daycare facilities.Influenced by diversification of how time is spent at such facilities and an increased numberof facilities that provide infant - care and child - care services, many notations have been addedto the “health” section. Since “health and safety,” issues can directly affect accidents thatmay prove life - threatening, it is particularly imperative that such matters are specified inthe childcare center guidelines to assure childcare quality is maintained. Comparison of therevised and older guidelines suggest that the value of childcare’s responsibilities in maintainingsafety to ensure child health is becoming ever more highly recognized.
