Planning for Child Development: Handbook. Appalachian Child Care Project.
Corbett, Franklin, Jr.
This handbook is a general planning tool for child development groups that want to be more effective than they are. It is designed to help a group determine (1) its reasons for existence; (2) its aspirations for improving child development programs in the community; (3) its limitations; (4) what steps it needs to take to achieve its goals; (5) who will carry out its initial project; and (6) the schedule of action necessary. The handbook also offers guidance in group self-evaluation, so that the group can determine (1) if the planned project is being carried out; (2) if it is being carried out to the group's satisfaction; and (3) upon completion, if the project fulfilled the group's initial expectations and if the group should continue to proceed with further projects.
