Family Day Care Classroom Training Guide.
Arnold, Bonnie C.
This training guide describes a 40-hour course for family day care providers. The course is designed to be given in 14 sessions to approximately 15 persons who voluntarily meet twice a week for 2 1/2 hours. A child care program for children aged 0 to 5 years located at the training site meets the need of working providers for alternate care while they attend training sessions. The program also demonstrates exemplary child care activities and aspects of good child care such as room arrangement, material selection and adult/child interaction. Topics discussed and explored in the training guide include organizing a day care home; working with parents; social, physical and emotional development; language; discipline; learning; learning activities; first aid; and observation skills. At least five additional hours are spent outside class doing individual observations and first aid programmed instruction. Sessions are organized around a statement of purpose, small group and/or individual exercises, a discussion, small group activities and follow up discussions. Central points to be emphasized by the trainer are indicated. Handouts and illustrative forms are frequently included. (Author/RH)
