The "Caring" Role in a Child Care Center. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project. Part I: Orientation.
Scavo, Marlene; And Others
One in a series written for caregivers or teachers in military child care centers, this staff development module provides brief discussions of aspects of child caregiving, describes related situations which beginning caregivers are likely to find difficult, offers alternate ways of responding to the difficulty, and provides feedback on caregivers' choices. The first section describes functions of the child care center and compares and contrasts children's experiences in the home and in center care. Problematic situations are presented in order to help the caregiver understand the child's transition between home and center, as well as to assist in the comprehension of differences between home and center values. The second section presents problematic situations directed toward dealing with conflict between co-workers and describes how caregivers can derive satisfaction from work well done. (RH)
