Abstract

Although asthmatic children spend a significant amount of time in child care programs, little is known about child care program directors' knowledge about asthma and what factors influence directors' level of knowledge about asthma. A telephone interview was conducted with directors of a randomly selected sample of all licensed child care centers and group day care homes in Connecticut. Directors of most child care programs were willing to admit asthmatic children to their programs, but their knowledge about asthma needs to be improved. Directors who have served for long periods of time may be a target group for additional education about asthma.
