Year One NTSU/TDHR Title XX Child Care Provider Training Program Needs Assessment/Evaluation. Final Report.
Fox, Norris D.; Schor, Mark M.
This final report provides an evaluative description of a child care provider training program. After a brief introduction, Section II discusses general service delivery in seven Texas counties. Tables represent number of trainees by county, trainees by facility type, modes of service delivery, and services provided to the counties. Section III describes group meetings which bring together expert trainers to cover specific topics relevant to provider needs and enable several trainees to receive training on specific topics of immediate interest. Brief descriptions of 27 discussion topics including discipline and behavior, working with parents, making educational materials, activities for infants and toddlers, health and safety precautions, emergency aid, puppetry, the magic circle, and professionalism are provided. In Section IV student college course evaluation data are reported. A summary, observations and recommendations are given in Section V. It is concluded that the North Texas State University Child Care Training Program appears to be meeting the needs of child care providers. Demand for University courses greatly exceeded anticipated enrollment. Additional faculty should be assigned to the training program. (Author/RH)
