OMEP will establish a list with links or downloads of these quality assessment materials. A report on the meeting of the Global Guidelines Task Force appears on the Downloads page of http://www.omep-usa.org.
: All OMEP member countries are asked to submit samples or a list of program quality assessment criteria, instruments, or documents used in your countries. Specifically, this request is for quality assessment guidelines or criteria that ECEC professionals in your country or region find useful and appropriate. These should be sent to Judith Wagner, Global Guidelines Task Force Chair by December 1, 2011.
