Koralek, Derry G.; And Others
This document contains volume I, volume II and the Trainer's Guide. Volume I contains 6 modules of a course of study designed to help individuals, either on their own or in a formal course of instruction, acquire the skills and knowledge needed to provide high-quality family child care for children from infancy through age 12. The other 7 modules outlined in volume II, and the entire 13-module training program can help individuals acquire a nationally recognized credential from the Child Development Association. The six modules cover safety, health, the learning environment, physical development, cognitive development, and communications in a self-study format. The seven modules contained in volume II cover creativity, self-esteem, social development, guidance, parent-relations, program management, and professionalism in a self-study format. Each module contains a subject overview, pre-training assessment to analyze strengths and weaknesses, four-to-six learning activities, a summary of significant concepts, a post-test or competency assessment, and a glossary of important words and terms. Each module is designed to be completed in 4-to-6 weeks, with the entire 13-module training program taking 12-to-18 months. Contains an annotated bibliography of 73 books and guides for further study. A trainer's guide is also included. (MDM)
