Caring for Toddlers. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project.
Scavo, Marlene; And Others
Self-paced instructional materials concerning day care for 2-year-old children are provided in this staff development module, intended for the caregiver or teacher in a military child care center. The module consists of several short discussions describing what toddlers are like and suggesting how they can be helped to handle their feelings, how their social development can be assisted, and how they can be helped to gain control of their bodies. Ways of encouraging toddlers' exploratory behavior and language development and of protecting their health and safety are also suggested. Discussions are followed by multiple-choice skill-building exercises which describe realistic situations including toddlers, provide alternative ways of handling each situation, and give feedback on the choices made. "Preview" and "postview" exercises are provided for self-evaluation. (RH)
