Caring for Infants. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project.
Scavo, Marlene; And Others
This staff development module, written for the caregiver or teacher in a military child care center, provides discussions about caring for infants. The first section concerns fetal development, describing the changes occurring from conception until 6 weeks after birth. Three subsequent sections discuss, in order, the infant from 6 to 16 weeks, from 4 months to 8 months, and from 8 months to 12 months of age. The last section in the module deals with caring for infants in groups. Coordinated with most sections are multiple-choice skill-building exercises which describe situations that have taken place with infants in child care centers, list alternate ways caregivers might choose to handle each situation, and provide feedback on their choices. Additional exercises are provided at the beginning and end of the module for use as informal pretests and posttests. (RH)
