The Creation and Activities of Local CARE Committees: A Manual on Stimulating Local Collaborative Efforts Relating to Preschool Services.
Stafford, Beth G.; And Others
One of four volumes devoted to the CARE (Children's Agencies, Resources, Etc.) Linkages Project in Tennessee, this report describes the development of eight county CARE committees. The goal of the project was to foster collaboration leading to more effective linkages between publicly funded child care and development programs and other service providers. Four inservice training sessions were provided by the state and local CARE coordinators for district program coordinators. These sessions focused on creating, staffing, and documenting the activities of local CARE committees. As a result of the sessions, lists of suggested local CARE committee members were developed. These differed according to geographical area but in general included professionals from public and private preschools and day care centers, health and environmental agencies, the local school system, the Department of Human Services, and local councils and volunteer groups. Sessions also generated agenda to follow at the first CARE committee meeting and clarified the role district coordinators should play. Numerous appendices include training materials, documents created for committee record keeping, and a summary of committee activities in each of eight counties. (CB)
