Training and Support in Childminding--A National Response: A Report on the Outcome of Regional Meetings on Training and Support Needs, Held during 1981/82.
Beckwith, Joyce
Designed to help develop a model for training and support in childminding, this report provides a close analysis of regional meetings on training and support needs in London, England. The discussion is presented in three sections. The first part provides examination of the background of the project, current trends and approaches, and justification for theoretical viewpoints. Regional meetings are outlined in part II according to organization, attendance, format, finance, and analysis of the recorded information. Specifically, the analysis of information outlines the method of analysis, issues and topics raised, categorization of issues, development within regions, key issues and problems, and conclusions. Part III based on a prior collection of 255 issues of concern, provides a revision of modules, levels, and topics for childminding training and support. A graphic format displays central core topics: social, educational, and community services; health and safety; relationships and attitudes; purposeful play and child development; abnormal development; practical workshop topics; causes for concern in childminding; and wider current issues. Condensations of group discussions are appended. (BJD)
