Characteristics of Federally Funded In-Service Day Care Training Programs.
Snow, Charles W.
The purpose of this study was to assess the characteristics of inservice day care training programs in the United States. The study covers programs which were partially or totally supported with federal funds. Questionnaires were sent to 161 programs which were in operation during the 1980-1981 fiscal year. Responses were obtained from 70 programs representing 23 states. The results of the study are discussed in terms of (1) program sponsors, (2) funding sources, (3) training staff, (4) target population, (5) delivery models and strategies, (6) teaching methods, (7) curriculum, (8) training materials, and (9) evaluation and monitoring. Responses in each category are analyzed and summarized in terms of common features, program differences, and overall trends. A list of training materials developed by the various projects is included in the appendix. (Author)
