Day Care: Resources for Decisions.
Grotberg, Edith H., Ed.
The question of federal day care programs on a mass scale oriented toward influencing family life is discussed, and a number of issues concerning the behavioral and social effects of such a system are raised. This document is divided into six parts. Part I discusses the following: day care settings--social, cultural, and anthropological considerations. This part examines day care programs in Denmark, Czechoslovakia, and Israel. It expresses the need for diversity in American day care programs and concludes with a historical background of day care in America up to the present. Part II presents an overview of child development and day care programs, examines the social and emotional development of young children, cognitive and language development in day care programs, principles of behavior acquisition and modification, the roles of motivation in learning, and behavior technology applied to day care. Part III covers adult-child interaction and personalized day care, parent involvement in early education, and parent training programs and community involvement in day care. Part IV discussed program supports and explores such areas as health support in day care, the relation of malnutrition to early development, and social work and supplementary services. Part V covers staff training and delivery systems, and Part VI concludes with an evaluation of present day care centers. (CK)
