Parker, Ronald K., Ed.; Dittmann, Laura L., Ed.
In the belief that trained personnel are vital to the development of quality care programs for children, this handbook provides training suggestions for personnel in various day care settings. Basic principles in day care training include: (1) All persons in a day care setting, from policy-makers, to staff, to children are learners; (2) Training should be a continuous process; (3) There are many and varied types of training; (4) Staff members need to be trained as a team; (5) Parents should be involved in all training stages; and (6) Training can be carried out at the day care setting. This handbook is divided into four chapters: (1) Introduction, (2) Careers in Day Care, (3) The Training Process, and (4) Description of a Selection of Training Programs. (Author/CK)
