USAFE Child Care Training Guide.
Chaklos, Linda R.
Composed of 19 chapters, this training guide for child caregivers in the United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE) offers information about various activity centers, the caregiver role and relationships, characteristics of children, caregiver responsibilities, and games. Each chapter consists of an outline of basic information concerning each topic, a list of resources for students, and a student study guide. Eleven chapters concern various activity centers, including learning and library centers as well as centers for dramatic play, blocks, art, music, table toys, outdoor (playground) activities, science, water play, and sand play. Three chapters discuss discipline and group management techniques, schedules and transitions, and enhancing the child's self-concept, respectively. Three other chapters focus on the child caregiver role, caregivers and infants, and caregivers and school-age children. The two remaining chapters deal with games and the emotional and social growth of young children. (RH)
