Health in Day Care: A Training Guide for Day Care Providers.
Pokorni, Judith L.; Kaufmann, Roxane K.
Written for trainers of day care staff, this guide provides help in communicating to day care personnel the information presented in "Health in Day Care: A Manual for Day Care Providers," originally developed by a division of the Massachusetts Department of Health and adapted for national use by the Georgetown University Child Development Center. The guide suggests training workshops for many of the issues presented in the manual. Workshop topics include creation of a healthy environment, toileting, center safety, emergencies and first aid, preventive health care, nutrition, special needs, child abuse and neglect, chronic health conditions, infectious diseases, care of the mildly ill child, and health and safety education for preschoolers. Each topic is introduced, and one or more suggested activities for each topic are described. Introductions contain a brief statement regarding the purpose of the activities and the sections of the manual concerned. Each activity is described in terms of concepts, approximate time needed, materials needed, process, and procedures. In several sections of the guide, materials originally developed for Head Start personnel have been used. A resource list of 19 children's books on safety, and citations of 8 examples of health and safety curricula, are included. (RH)
