The American Diabetes Association (ADA) released a position statement about Care of Young Children with Diabetes in the Childcare Setting. This is an important article to read.

Several key points and concepts are reviewed in the ADA article. These include acceptance for enrollment, written care plans, provision of care by child care staff, staff training requirements, and how staff need to support the child in his or her development by allowing participation in diabetes tasks if appropriate and outlined in the plan.

Responsibilities of stakeholders reviewed and detailed the roles of the parent/guardian, the child care program, and the child's diabetes health care provider.
