    First, props to the good people who run the Washington State Legislature’s website. I did not expect such a user friendly, intuitive interface for policy documents like this. This makes finding and using the WACs very easy. I can see how the WACs are relevant in much of what happens where I work. From record keeping to facility needs to staff training, it seems clear that the WACs are meant to be a guiding force in child care, with the aim of optimizing the health, safety, and well-being of children. I’m sure many of our philosophies of early childhood education may differ, but I’m glad to have these policies as a bedrock to ensure that early learning programs and the folks involved with them are operating responsibly.
