This handbook is intended to serve as a reference guide for the family day care mother offering information and suggestions that may be useful in her daily work. Section one deals with the family day care provider on a personal level; how she communicates with parents and how she manages her business, including record keeping, taxes, and Social Security. Section two discusses working with children from infancy through school age and their developmental patterns; language development in children and the importance of providing an atmosphere conducive to speech and language growth; and child guidance in a positive manner. Section three focuses on the importance of having program activities in a family day care home. Ideas and suggestions for a variety of activities to offer the children (field trips, science projects, arts and crafts) are included. The final section discusses health and safety in the family day care home and ways the provider can cope with emergency situations. (JMB)
