  1. Stephanie,
    Thank you for sharing your additional resources. I went on the child care group website and it was very familiar to me. It reminded me of a website that I referenced for parents in Ohio. I think the more we look at other websites the more ideas we can get for what information we should have out there for parents, caregivers, teachers, advocates and policy makers. Thank you so much for showing me a website that I can learn from.

  2. Stephanie,
    I enjoyyed looking through the RC3 - Relationship Centered Child Care website. It was very interesting, comparing Texas standards with Pennsylvania standards. They are very different. The subsidy and food programs seem very similar.
