Administration of Child Care Programs: Business Management. Instructor's Guide.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
Designed for use by postsecondary child development instructors, this guide is organized into four units that expose students to the general competencies and business management aspects of child care program administration. Introductory materials discuss the use of the materials and provide guidelines for evaluating students. The four units cover general competencies (functions of management, leadership and board of directors), regulations and legal concerns, personnel (organizing, acquiring and dismissing, and maintaining), and finances (funding, record keeping, and financial control). At the beginning of each unit, performance objectives and references are listed. Suggested classroom learning experiences for each objective provide instructors with teaching strategies to help students achieve the objectives. The unit test includes multiple choice and essay questions. The 48 transparency masters and 51 handouts, which follow unit 4, may be reproduced as needed for classroom use. Appendixes include a glossary, glossary test, answer keys, and a nine-page bibliography. A companion student laboratory manual is available separately. The materials are most effective in courses that have both a lecture and laboratory. Carefully selected textbooks and access to a quality child care center are essential for effective use of the materials. Possible textbooks may be found in the bibliography. (YLB)
