Caring for Preschoolers. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project.
Scavo, Marlene; And Others
Ideas and experiences to assist in working with 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children are provided in this staff development module for the caregiver or teacher in a military child care center. The module consists of several short discussions describing characteristics of preschoolers, ways they can be helped to feel secure, and the manner in which their health and safety can be protected. Suggestions are also made with regard to satisfying preschoolers' need for structure, encouraging their exploratory behavior, and letting them know that they are cared for. Following each discussion are multiple-choice skill-building exercises which describe realistic situations including preschool children, provide alternative ways to handle each situation, and give feedback on choices made. Provided at the beginning and end of the module are exercises for self-evaluation. (RH)
