High quality teacher-child interaction and engagement could have influential roles in assessing the value of early childhood experiences. The “High 5” is designed to help parents evaluate prospective childcare programs that promote later academic and social success, based on the latest psychological research and evidence-based approaches. It will also emphasize the role of teacher-parent interaction and how childcare centers are situated within cultural contexts. The five areas are child-focused activities and routines; relationship and relationship-building; guiding and redirecting (addressing) behavior; teacher-child communication; and family and community engagement.
