Graves, Vivian; And Others
This report describes a six-week, in-service training program for family day care mothers consisting of three components: (1) weekly small group meetings of the mothers to share ideas about child care and to learn about child development and various home activities for children; (2) home visitations (informal discussions between the mother and a program team member who demonstrated home activities; and (3) a classroom child care program provided for the family day care children while the mothers were in weekly meetings. Descriptions of the objectives, procedures, curricula, and effectiveness of each component are given. Operational procedures, scheduling, staffing, levels of decision-making, community involvement, and parent-child recruitment are described in detail. Appendices comprise approximately one-half of the report and include an annotated bibliography of books, pamphlets, periodicals, and packets related to child care; evaluation instruments; program forms; materials and recipes for caregivers; communication and publicity materials, the child care site plan and equipment; and a brief proposal for a county-wide family day care mothers' training program.
