1. Developmentally appropriate and stimulating activities
2. Special care and respect for child
3. Nutritionally balanced meals and snacks
4. Daily notes (mostly verbal)
5. Open and honest communication, if anything is going on with child,
I expect that child care center should talk to me about it freely.

This goes for family childcare as well as center care...

1. State health and safety standards met consistently (everyone makes minor mistakes, such as missing paperwork, but overall, they should meet regulatory code). Even exempt providers should meet basic health and safety standards.

2. Caring teachers and caregivers who are responsive to the children's needs, who treat the children respectfully, and provide discipline when needed, but in a caring manner.

3. A fun, friendly atmosphere, with opportunities for the children to play, explore, and learn, although not necessarily through formal instruction.

4. Teachers that stay for a long time because they are respected and paid decently.

5. Good communication between teachers and parents.

6. Parents who value the teachers and the center, who don't think of the center as just somewhere to park their children while they are gone, and who are willing to pitch in once in a while to make things better for all parties; the children, the families, and the caregivers.

I noticed in your example that you had "minimum standards for safety and care". In WI, that list is 764 or so items long, with varying degrees of importance. Each state has it's own standards, but in the long run, common sense should prevail, and each parent must decide for themselves if their caregiver meets THEIR standards. If not, find another caregiver....

Among all these the most important and the top most expectation of each and every parents from a child care is the safety and security of their child. Others are varies from one parents to other but the safety and security is the common expectation of every parents from a child care.
Selection of baby items is the most difficult task for all mummys.
