Takanishi, Ruby; And Others
This report presents a description and evaluation of a workshop to discuss issues in day care. Topics discussed included forms of day care, language acquisition, bilingualism, personality and social development, day care curriculums, and caregiving. Participants in the workshop were the staff of a university-subsidized day care center, parents of children attending the center, faculty and students from the subsidizing university, and local professionals in early childhood education and day care. The participants' evaluation of the workshop, expressed in discussion groups and in responses to questionnaire questions, reflected a need for more communication between parents and staff of the child care center. Students in the university also requested more opportunity to become involved in the planning of content sessions of future workshops. Evaluation results indicated that the workshop achieved the objectives of providing a means of communication between parents and staff of the day care center and the training of students in the conduct of field applications of child development theory and research.
