The "Caring" Role in a Child Care Center. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project. Part III: Relating to Children.
Scavo, Marlene; And Others
Designed to help trainee child caregivers working in military care centers make decisions relating to real problems, this staff development module examines how caregivers can create an optimal environment for children. Discussions focus on respecting children's individual differences, being aware of feelings and personal style in dealing with children, supporting children's play, protecting children's safety, and helping children develop expectancies and familiarity with routine activities at the center. Following each discussion is a set of multiple-choice skill-building exercises based on situations caregivers are likely to encounter. These exercises describe a problematic situation, list alternate responses which the caregiver may select, and provide feedback on the caregiver's choice. A "postview" of new situations and alternate ways of handling them is provided at the end of the module. (RH)
