Parents can play a variety of roles in the life of a child care center. These roles are limited only by the time and interests of parents and the openness and creativity of the center staff. This guidebook, one of a series on the subject of military child care centers, discusses ways to effectively involve parents and other volunteers in the child care program. It specifically discusses ways for strengthening the center/home link, considering different kinds of involvement, encouraging parent/staff communication, making the center a family resource, and developing an effective volunteer program.
