Volume II: A Post-High School Program in Child Care Services Vocational Education in Home Economics. 1966-67.
Georgia Univ., Athens. Coll. of Education.
The institute was designed to provide information and some ability in initiating, developing, and evaluating programs at the post-high school level to prepare assistants to directors of child care services. An analysis of jobs in child care services indicates that there are many jobs for all levels of training. A difference between the existing and desired levels of training for employees indicates a need to up-grade child care personnel, particularly at the technical or subprofessional level. Job descriptions, competencies for child care workers, and curriculum for child care services are outlined. A curriculum designed to prepare individuals for employment in child care services in day-care centers, nursery schools, children's institutions, medical institutions and recreational facilities lists necessary course work at a junior college or area vocational technical school. Instructional materials are designed to develop concepts of developmental tasks and characteristics of children, environmental influences, child care services and personnel, program criteria, equipment and supplies, employee and employer characteristics, and personal professional development. They are presented in tabular form specifying content, experiences, evaluation and resources. Related materials are available as VT 003 400. (FP)
