Special Collections

Each special collection is a compilation of topic-specific standards drawn from the Caring for Our Children – National Health and Safety Performance Standards, Guidelines for Early Care and Education Programs, 3rd edition (CFOC3). These collections were developed for child care and early education caregivers/teachers to promote the health and safety of children in out-of-home care. All collections were reviewed by external subject matter experts for thoroughness and accuracy. When accessed from the website, the collections will reflect the most up-to-date standards.
