Parent Involvement: Some Considerations.
Hyde Park - Kenwood Community Conference, Chicago, IL. Child Care Task Force.
The focus of this paper is on the immediate and long-range advantages of parent involvement, the definitions and implications of varying levels of parent involvement in child care center operations, and the general means by which a chosen level of involvement might be achieved. The advantages of parent involvement are discussed briefly in terms of the child, parents, and staff and center, and several factors affecting the level of involvement are outlined. Four general categories of parent participation are defined (non-involvement or little involvement, non-decision-making, decision making, and parent control) and their implications enumerated. A few suggestions for involving parents at each desired involvement level are given. (ED)
