ix Acknowledgments
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
The National Resource Center for Health and Safety in
Child Care would like to acknowledge the outstanding
contributions of all persons and organizations involved in
the revision of Caring for Our Children: National Health and
Safety Performance Standards: Guidelines for Out-of-Home
Child Care Programs, Third Edition. The collaboration of
the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Public
Health Association, and the Maternal and Child Health
Bureau provided a wide scope of technical expertise from
their constituents in the creation of this project. The subject-
specific Technical Panels as listed provided the majority
of the content and resources. Over 180 organizations and
individuals were asked to review and validate the accuracy
of the content and contribute additional expertise where
applicable. The individuals representing these organizations
are listed in Stakeholder Reviewers/Additional Contributors
(see below). This broad collaboration and review from the
best minds in the field has led to a more comprehensive and
useful tool.
In a project of such scope, many individuals provide
valuable input to the end product. We would like to
acknowledge those individuals whose names may have
been omitted.
