Report of the Child Care Training Needs Assessment.
Poresky, Robert H.; Dirggers, Jo Ann M.
The findings of a day care training needs assessment survey conducted in the State of Kansas by the Day Care Training Systems Project comprise the body of this report. Questionnaires were distributed to child care providers and agency personnel with child care responsibilities. Child care providers included both family and center providers, while agency personnel included staff from the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services and the Kansas State Department of Health and Environment. The results of the survey indicated a need for resources and training for child care providers in the state including family day care home providers, relative providers and child care center providers. An interest in attending a workshop for child care providers was also indicated, and providers and agency personnel rated the following workshop topics as most important: The Day Care Professional, Discipline and Guidance, Children in Families with Separation, Divorce, Physical and Emotional Disturbances, Child Abuse and Neglect, Building the Child's Self-Concept, First Aid, Creating a Safe and Healthy Environment, Development of the Preschool Child, Children's Play as a Learning Experience, Identifying and Caring for the Child with Special Needs, Relationships with Parents, Parental Roles and Responsibilities, Preparing, Serving and Planning Nutritious Meals and Snacks, Planning and Organization, and Activities and Daily Schedule. Copies of the survey instruments are included in appendix A. (Author/CM)
