Day Care and Child Development Council of America, Inc., Washington, DC.; Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA. Southeastern Day Care Project.
This booklet provides basic information for those involved in creating new day care programs or revising existing ones in their own communities. Chapters 1 and 2 offer discussions on basic approaches to day care as well as general aspects of programming. In Chapter 3 three types of staff training are investigated. A black studies inservice training program is described in detail. Chapters 4 and 5 concentrate on health and food. In Chapter 6 the complex role of the social worker within a day care center is discussed, especially in relation to activities which coordinate and provide services to and for families. Chapter 7 considers the topic of parents, the role the center plays in enhancing the parent/child relationship and the role the parents play through various forms of involvement (suggested activities are included). The importance, sources, training and scheduling of volunteers is covered in detail in Chapter 8, including a paper on one center's experience. Chapter 9, 10, and 11 cover more specialized concerns and problems of child care, specifically infants, school-age children's programs, and family day care (here considered as adjunct to community day care programs).
