JDC Handbook for Teachers in Day Care Centers.
American Joint Distribution Committee, Geneva (Switzerland).
This guide for teachers in day care centers offers discussions (both philosophical and practical) about the needs and behaviors of preschool children, makes suggestions for teacher guidance throughout the daily program activities and routines, and defines a suitable nurturing and educational day care center environment. Directed to the teacher, the handbook covers aspects of teacher-child and teacher-center relationships. A lengthy section on art, music, language, and indoor-and-outdoor play activities gives specific program information. Included is a section on Jewish holiday celebrations and food preparation, which could be incorporated into the center's activities, if appropriate. One of the original purposes of this handbook was to assist teachers of disadvantaged children in Morocco, Tunisia, and Iran. Appendixes include descriptions of games, art activities, and Hebrew songs and prayers. (MS)
