Administration of Child Care Programs: Business Management. Student Laboratory Manual.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
Designed as a laboratory experience guide and workbook, this manual exposes postsecondary students to the general competencies and business management aspects of child care program administration. 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). Each unit begins with performance objectives. An overview introduces basic concepts related to the unit topic. Suggested readings for in-depth study are given at the end of the overview. Lab experiences in each unit include both observation and participation assignments. Unit 1 has 11 lab experiences; unit 2 has 7; unit 3 has 15; unit 4 has 6. Each lab experience details the learning objective and directions and provides a list of any materials necessary to complete the experience. Participatory evaluation forms are included for the instructor's use in evaluating a student's performance. A checklist is provided for students to evaluate their own performance. Other components of the manual include guidelines for successful lab experiences, a glossary, and a 15-item bibliography. (YLB)
