The Guidelines were drafted by a task force that was selected from different sectors and representative of the interests of the people that are affected by drawing from the professionals and experts from other states. The program was instituted to give guidelines and the governing principles to the early care and educational practitioners’ effort to improve early childhood education practice for young children. The Task Force was formed in 2002 and was mainly aimed at developing the best practices for early learning practices. The program was mainly conceptualized to be in line with the National Legislation and initiatives that were looking to ensure that every child had the best development structure and did not suffer due to having the wrong development structure in place (National Research Council). The framework that was instituted looked to enhance the development of the children from 3 to five years and was looking to strengthen school readiness efforts across local, state and federal early care education systems.
