No 95, KDI Focus from Korea Development Institute (KDI)

Abstract: Public concern over the quality of child care has risen in recent years, deepening the distrust of child care centers. To assure parents of their children's safety and well-being at care facilities, consistent and full access to the operations of centers must be guaranteed. Based on this openness, parental participation should be encouraged in regards to the decision-making process on care quality as well as active parent-teacher interaction to devise programs that could help children develop essential future skills. It is also important that the detailed results of center evaluations are placed in the public domain to enable the evaluation and accreditation system to contribute to enhancing the quality of child care. Furthermore, teachers should be provided with training programs.
