Day Care Update: Programs, Policy and Research. An ERIC Abstract Bibliography.
Watkins, Charlotte H., Comp.
This abstract bibliography cites approximately 100 ERIC documents and journal articles, all dating from 1977 or 1978, concerning day care for children. Seven broad topics are covered: program planning and management; staff characteristics, roles and training; parent values and involvement; special types of day care (including school age day care, infant/toddler day care, drop-in or crisis care, and campus day care); research on the effects of day care on children; federal and state policies and standards; and day care in countries other than the United States. Each document or article is listed under its major focus, although it may include information on one or more of the other topics as well. Document citations, drawn from "Resources in Education (RIE)," include abstracts of up to 200 words. Article citations are drawn from "Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE)"; most include brief annotations. Information for obtaining each document or article is provided either in the citation or at the end of the bibliography. (Author/MP)
