Rural Child Care Project, 1968-1969 Research Evaluation. Volume I: A Description of the Rural Child Care Project, 1965-1969. Final Report.
Archambo, Judith P.; Briscoe, May E.
Volume I of this final report, an overview of Kentucky's multi-county Rural Child Care Project, describes the project's history, purposes, structure, and procedures in administering child-development, social-work and homemaking services. The day care program, which became a full-year Head Start program in 1967, is one aspect of the effort to provide socialization experiences, total family participation, and health and welfare services for all members of project families within a self-help framework. One characteristic of the Rural Child Care Project is that all staff at the county level are indigenous nonprofessionals trained on the job to provide project services. In the document, major divisions are "A Description of the Rural Child Care Project, 1965-1969" (which focuses on professional and nonprofessional staff duties and training, staff turnover, career development for staff, and staff characteristics); "Recruitment of Project Families,""Child Development Center Program," and "Social Services." Included are 1 table and 14 references. Related documents are RC 005 578 and RC 005 579. (MJB)
