Pennsylvania Child Care/Early Childhood Development Training System Annual Report 1992-93.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Public Welfare, Harrisburg. Bureau of Child Day Care Services.
During 1992, the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare instituted several new collaborative projects to increase training opportunities for child care employees in the state: (1) to assure that high quality training would continue to be offered; (2) to respond to the mandate for ongoing training for all child care workers; and (3) to subsidize the training to make it affordable for more child care providers. The School Age Child Care program was developed to provide "latchkey" children with a safe and developmentally appropriate alternative. Licensed Child Care Centers serve the greatest number of children receiving day care, and 21,000 licensed child care center employees received training. The Better Kid Care program was designed to meet the needs of users and providers of legally unregulated and minimally certified providers. Home Based Child Care providers receive training through workshops, a training refund program, or through a Child Development Associate scholarship assistance program. Older Adult In-service Child Development Associate Training hopes to increase the number of available child care employees. The Early Childhood Education Linkage System collaborates with public and private agencies to improve the well-being of children in the state's early childhood programs by providing a number of information services, publications, and training opportunities.
