Orientation for Day Care Center Staff: Guidelines and Procedures.
Henry, Dagny; And Others
This guide is designed to assist day care agencies in the development of an orientation program for new staff. The first section of the guide provides a list of questions that should be considered when deciding what information new staff should know. Questions are related to the following six areas: introductory tour of the school; school organization and policy; health and safety; nutrition and food services; center philosophy and practice; and grievance procedures. The second section of the guide offers procedural suggestions for conducting the orientation program, including a brief summary of the experiences of two day care centers where the orientation outline was used on an experimental basis. The guide also includes a short bibliography of articles, pamphlets, and books intended to contribute to an understanding of some of the issues that often arise during staff orientation. (Author/MP)
