The National Governors Association has selected Oregon and five other States to help promote and establish higher day care standards. States already have day care standards that address the health, safety, and welfare of the students. For instance, most states, if not all of them, have staff to child ratios for day care centers. In looking to go beyond basic standards, Oregon will be looking at other factors that will improve the day care experience for children. For instance, one such area would involve monitoring how a child retains information during story time. It appears that the day care program or model being considered or implemented by Oregon will look deeper into the day care experience of the child.
