Establishing a Training Program for Child Care Workers: A Guide for Teachers.
The critical shortage of child care personnel trained to work with children from infancy through adolescence, calls for the creation of training programs at the subprofessional level. Intended for the day care and child welfare agency personnel, teachers, and others interested in training child care workers, this publication offers guidelines for use in establishing such programs at the secondary, post-secondary, or adult training level. The guidelines, which were developed from a review of curriculum materials and training programs specifically for child care workers, are organized under these categories: (1) General Considerations, (2) Program Objectives, (3) Advisory Committee, (4) Program Staffing, (5) Program Director and Teacher Qualifications, (6) Program Funding and Costs, (7) Trainee Selection, (8) Curriculum, (9) Facilities and Equipment, (10) Establishing and Operating a Child Care Laboratory, and (11) Evaluation, Placement, and Followup. In addition to the guidelines, descriptions of several secondary, post-secondary, and adult training programs for child care workers, and an annotated bibliography are included. (Author)
