A Parent Handbook for Family Childcare Programs Most parents who need childcare seek a high quality childcare program. Parents want the best for their children. It is difficult to find a childcare program that meets the high standards that parents and children deserve. When a family is enrolled in a high quality program, it is important that the childcare provider share all aspects of his or her childcare program. Therefore, communication is necessary. The researcher developed a parent handbook to be used for family childcare programs. This handbook contains information that describes the program and highlights the aspects of the program that make it a high quality program. It also includes rules and regulations that are necessary for a provider to facilitate a proficient program. This handbook includes a thorough listing of rules, regulations, and important information that parents need to have in order to understand how the facility promotes a high quality childcare program.
