    The physical environment sets the stage and creates the context for everything that happens in any setting—a classroom, a play yard, a multipurpose room. A high-quality environment welcomes children; engages children in a variety of activities; provides space for individual, small-group, and large-group activities; and generally supports the program's philosophy and goals. Ultimately, the physical environment must convey values and messages about who is welcomed, what is important, and what the beliefs are about how children learn.

    Administrators and staff need to know not only how children are progressing but also what challenges they are encountering. Teachers working on this standard will benefit from integrating assessment into their day, rather than making assessment a large task to be attempted all at once. Assessments should occur within the context of reciprocal communications with families and with sensitivity to the cultural contexts in which children develop.

    Families offer to program staff a unique and invaluable perspective on their child's behavior, developmental progress, and learning styles. Likewise, program staff who develop and maintain relationships within the larger community can provide better quality support and information to families. Teachers share the primary responsibility for establishing both types of relationships, and in each case, children benefit the most.

    Health includes complete physical, oral, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. To benefit from education and maintain quality of life, children need to be as healthy as possible and to be able to depend on adults—who also are as healthy as possible—to make healthy choices for them and to teach them to make healthy choices for themselves. This resource focuses on NAEYC's Health Program Standard.

    Although all standards are important, in essence, high quality, effective leadership and management refer to the oversight, organization, and execution of the content of all the other NAEYC Program Standards. Without strong leadership and management, it is virtually impossible to provide comprehensive quality service and to support staff efforts to meet the needs of children and families. This resource focuses on NAEYC's Leadership and Management Program Standard.
