Mecklenburg County Dept. of Social Services, Charlotte, NC.
This document contains a brief report on the development of a county-wide day care program which serves more than 400 children at 12 facilities in housing projects or churches in both black and white low income communities. The report describes the initial project development, the physical facilities, and progress made at staff development and parental interest. The program includes supplemental parental care, developmental and educational experiences, parent and community involvement, and the use of community services such as casework, medical care, homemaker, and child welfare services. More than one-half of the document is made up of forms, guides, and guidelines which are being used by both teachers and parents in the project. Included are home-visit and in-school report and evaluation forms, suggestions and guidelines for teachers to use in observing and recording child behavior and development, a list of books for teachers, and guidelines for parents' classroom visitation and observation.
