A Day in Day Care: A Program for Two-Year-Olds.
This description of a safe and interesting day care program for 2-year-olds can be used by parents as a guide to selecting good day care; it can also be used by a day care center to stimulate discussion about program planning and implementation. Although the program described is not considered to be a perfect one, it would meet New York State Department of Social Services day care licensing standards. Most early childhood educators would probably find it acceptable, although some would suggest changes or improvements. The description of the program is arranged sequentially from early morning preparations to the end-of-day routine for the convenience of groups wishing to use it as the basis for discussion. For caregivers interested in setting up a program or modifying an existing day care program, guidelines on selecting equipment, arranging equipment in seven basic activity areas, and planning activities for toddlers also are provided.
