How to Operate Your Day Care Program.
Jones (Ryan) Associates, Inc., Wyomissing, PA.
Originally written to assist communities in Pennsylvania in the design and implementation of comprehensive child development day care programs to meet Federal Inter-Agency guidelines, this manual is geared to the specific needs of the administrator and is equally valuable for any program, large or small, public or private. Section I is on the selection and administration of personnel, with subsections on personnel selection committees, job descriptions, advertising, personnel selection and screening criteria, and administration. The second section on office management deals with budgeting, purchasing, record keeping, and insurance contracts. Part III discusses the recruitment of children--selection criteria, methods, and intake. Part IV on setting up the day care program gives chapters on the advisory committee, inter-group relations, infants and toddlers, preschool and school-age groups, health, nutrition, social services, and parent and volunteer involvement. The fourth section on training personnel outlines purposes, goals, procedures, methods, content, and career development. The final evaluative section considers staff, children, physical environment, daily program, parents, office management, governing board, supportive services, strengths, weaknesses, and priorities.
