This parent resource manual was developed for use in home-based preschool programs and is part of a learning package which instructs prospective family workers, family worker trainers, and parents in the entry level skills, knowledge, and orientations needed to provide children from birth through 8 years of age with school oriented learning skills. (The training kit consists of 3 booklets: (1) the Home Visitor Trainer's Notebook; (2) the Parent's Notebook; and (3) the Home Visitor's Resource Materials.) The Parent's Notebook provides specific information about the parent's role in the program as primary instructor of his or her child, answers written questions on child development and growth, shows examples of learning materials (such as stories, poems, games, and songs) that parents can use and lists helpful books and pamphlets.
