Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Career and Vocational Education Section.
The handbook presents training guidelines for the development of child care services training programs at the high school level. Twenty-four child care occupations are identified and briefly described. An occupational and task analysis of common functions in the different occupational areas are presented in tabular form. Recommended background training for the occupations are listed. Four suggested planned course statements in child care and a list of goals and competencies are given. A curriculum outline for child care occupational courses is structured according to the following goals: aids growth and development, guides behavior, plans and uses play activities and creative media, provides for physical needs, promotes health and safety, and demonstrates qualities required for employment. Each goal contains information on the following areas: competencies and concepts, content outline, learning experiences, and performance indicators. Nearly two-thirds of the document (128 pages) contains appended materials that can be utilized for child care program development and planning: instructional materials, addresses, other resources, rules and statutes governing child care in Oregon, equipment for a child care facility, equipment supply companies, course materials, work experience, tests and scales, records and forms, child abuse, feeding young children, and a poem.
