Training Child Care Workers in Denmark: II. Training Family Helpers and Family Day Care Mothers.
Wagner, Mary; Wagner, Marsden G.
This report describes the training of two kinds of paraprofessionals in child care in Denmark: the family helper who has considerable educational background, and the family day care mother for whom there are no educational prerequisites. The funding, the training, and the curriculum design of the paraprofessional programs are discussed. There is an important cooperative relationship between the central government and the local government in the training program, with the central government setting the standards and evolving the curriculum, and the local government retaining complete responsibility for recruiting workers. The training programs have attracted a large number of well-qualified participants. Refresher and supplementary courses play a vital role. (CS)
