RESOLUTION NO. 980702

 

Endorsing the Community Standards for Quality Early Childhood Care and Education.

 

WHEREAS, quality early childhood care and education is an important part of a healthy community; and

 

WHEREAS, in 1997, the Local Investment Commission and the Metropolitan Council on Child Care convened a committee of volunteers to draft quality standards for the greater Kansas City community; and

 

WHEREAS, this completed document represents a culmination of efforts to gather input from the greater Kansas City metropolitan area. As such, it reflects area citizens feelings and aspirations about what constitutes quality in early care and education programs in our communities; and

 

WHEREAS, three primary purposes of this document are to encourage all early care and education programs to voluntarily use these standards to improve quality as they move toward the goal of accreditation, to establish a higher benchmark of quality for early child care and education services throughout the community and to develop a community definition of quality early care and education services for consumer education; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council do hereby express their support of and endorse the Community Standards for Quality Early Childhood Care and Education.
