Syllabus Outline on Child Care for Day Care Teachers at Family Life Teacher Training Centre in Somalia. African Studies in Curriculum Development and Evaluation No. 103.
Ahmed, Mumina M.
Five day care centers in Mogadiscio, the capital city of Somalia, were studied to (1) identify problems encountered in teaching a course in child care; (2) observe teaching methods and assess their effectiveness; (3) ascertain reasons for the lack of preservice training for day care teachers; and (4) develop a new syllabus for a course in child care. A random sample of 35 teachers and four headmistresses completed questionnaires and participated in interviews; observations were made at the centers. In addition, the head of the Women's Education Service was interviewed. Chapter I provides background information about the study, while chapter II discusses data collection. Chapter III presents findings concerning a broad range of center characteristics. Chapter IV offers conclusions and recommendations concerning training, staffing, administration/supervision, food provision, school buildings, community work, health and sanitation, and equipment and educational materials. Also included in the report are illustrated descriptions of appropriate learning materials, the suggested syllabus for day care teacher training, various center record-keeping forms, and the questionnaire and interview questions used in the study.
