Caring for Pretoddlers. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project.
Scavo, Marlene; And Others
Ideas for working with 1-year-old children are provided in this staff development module for the caregiver or teacher in a military child care center. Sections of the module describe what "pretoddlers" are like and provide guidelines for facilitating their physical, socioemotional, and language development. The final section discusses health and safety aspects of caring for a group of pretoddlers. After the discussion in each section, a set of multiple-choice skill-building exercises are offered. These exercises cite situations that have actually taken place with pretoddlers in child care centers, list alternate responses caregivers might choose, and give feedback on choices made. Preview and postview exercises are included for self-evaluation. (RH)
