School-Age Child Care: An Action Manual.
Baden, Ruth Kramer; And Others
Designed to be used by parents, school principals, program directors, superintendents, or others interested in child care programs, this action manual provides ideas, models and guidelines for the design, development, implementation, and operation of a program for the school-age child. Part 1 offers profiles of existing models of child care programs around the United States which reflect creative community solutions to the dilemma of school-age child care. Part 2 outlines the step-by-step process of getting started, from individuals' initial perceptions that there is a need in the community for school-age child care to the formation of a planning group and identification of the work it must accomplish. Part 3 specifies legal issues that should be investigated before a program can be put into operation, and discusses the mechanisms and strategies which can be used to successfully obtain cooperation and community approval for the program. Detailed discussions of the policies and procedures relating to the administration, staff development, finances, and day-to-day operation of the program is presented in part 4. Finally, part 5 discusses ways for planning, implementation, and evaluation of a school-age child care curriculum. (MP)
