Caring for School-Age Children. Staff Development Series, Military Child Care Project.
Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (DOD), Washington, DC.
One of a series written for the beginning caregiver or teacher in a military child care center, this staff development module aims to provide practice in making decisions in problematic sitations concerning school-age children. The module offers several discussions of issues related to the topic of child care for school-age children. These discussions offer guidelines for orienting center care to meet basic needs of school-age children, for maintaining their interest, for understanding effects of caregiver behavior on children at the primary level, for helping children deal with their feelings and behave in acceptable ways, and for meeting the needs of older children in school-age care. Multiple-choice skill-building exercises, relating mainly to primary-school students in center care, are included after most discussions in order to suggest alternatives for conducting activities. Also provided are "preview" and "postview" items for self-evaluation. (RH)
