Ensuring Consistent Program Philosophy and Quality Standards to Multiple Child Care Sites.
Meranda, Keri Campsey
The head teacher of a child care organization implemented a practicum intervention designed to establish complete and clear procedures, guidelines, and standards of quality for staff members. As a result of the practicum intervention, it was expected that at the end of 10 weeks: (1) the staff at the child care center would support a plan for educational quality as indicated by the poll that was administered; (2) four of five colleagues would rate the quality plan as a successful approach to maintaining consistent philosophy and standards in a multiple site organization; and (3) six of eight members on the center's Board of Directors would evaluate the plan for quality as appropriate for implementation by managerial staff. Responses to evaluation questionnaires were positive with respondents agreeing that the plan and related materials would ensure consistent philosophy and quality. The plan and materials will be used in working with staff to maintain a consistent philosophy as the organization expands. Appendices provide sample questionnaires and written program materials on guidance and discipline, curriculum guidelines, and general program philosophy. (RH)
