Training Programs for Child Care Personnel. Volume I. Final Report: Part IX.
Mathis, Mary Elizabeth; Kilmer, Sally
This paper presents a prototype for a comprehensive and coordinated child care training program that provides a flexible framework for administration and program design. The prototype is based on the findings of a pilot investigation of a sample of existing child care training programs. These findings suggest that there is a great need for more information in all areas concerned with training programs for child care personnel. There is also a need for more training of child care workers. The prototype has several advantages: it focuses on local needs; it is responsive to and integrated with service delivery systems; and it permits various groups to begin training activities. The training program is flexible and bases credit upon competency. As an initial step toward the implementation of the prototype, a consortium of federal agencies, personnel of existing training programs, and others interested in training efforts, should be established at the federal level. Secondly, a detailed, nationwide study of training programs should be undertaken to determine the availability and effectiveness of such training.
