This guide was developed for use in implementing a secondary or postsecondary program to prepare workers in the field of child care services in Virginia. The program uses the career ladder concept and meets the criteria for tech prep programs in the state. The guide is organized in eight sections. Section 1 contains a career ladder chart, program information and descriptions, and sample student schedules. Section 2 provides the master task list and the task analyses for implementing the secondary and postsecondary programs. Section 3 contains sample teaching sequences to assist the classroom instructor in exploring possibilities for ordering the tasks into teaching units. Section 4 offers matrixes of integrated academic skills for mathematics, science, language arts, and health and wellness. Sections 5 and 6 are composed of sample handbooks for operating preschools and coordinating practical work experiences for child care students. Sections 7 and 8 contain lists of committee members who aided in implementing the child care services program and a bibliography listing the 66 instructional resources referenced throughout the framework pages.
