Developing a Standard of Care for Your Outdoor Space – Online
LISC and its Rhode Island Child Care and Early Learning Facilities Fund will provide a brief overview on the important role that child care facilities play in overall program quality. The session will focus on outdoor space and developing a standard of care packet for your playground. The “standard of care” is used to describe the responsibility to provide a reasonable level of care to a play area to help prevent unnecessary injury.
