Behavioral Checklist of Infant/Toddler Care-Provider Competencies.
Gulley, S. Beverly; And Others
This document provides the Behavioral Checklist of Infant/Toddler Care-Provider Competencies which was developed to evaluate competencies of care-providers as well as to serve as an assessment tool for self-evaluation. Information which met the criteria of sound child development principles and operations critical to child care was incorporated into the list. The competencies were stated in behavioral terms and organized into 15 categories. Content validity was established by a panel of 12 experts in infant/toddler care who reviewed the competencies for clarity and relevancy. A revised instrument, which has been utilized in private and university infant/toddler center care programs, provides for self-assessment, training, and external evaluation. The 15 original categories have been reduced to seven; the competencies have been stated in more specific behavioral terms; some competencies have been deleted to eliminate redundancy; several competencies have been added to provide completeness; competencies which apply primarily to directors have been grouped and separated from the rest; and a format for identifying attainment of a particular competency has been added.
