Professional Development and Child Care Practitioners: Implications for Training.
Peterson, Karen L.
This paper examines a comprehensive approach to training for child care practitioners and presents a framework for developing staff training. It considers each of the four elements essential to building training experiences: adult developmental change, growth in professional competence, characteristics of adult learning, and training options. Each component is examined as it relates to early childhood personnel who have in-service staff development needs. This information is then synthesized into a model that considers a match between three development or skill levels of child care practitioners and appropriate training guidelines. The model is presented in tabular form that indicates training consideration for each of the three levels: entry- or maintaining level, mid- or support level, and mature or facilitating level practitioners. A list of 36 references is appended. (YLB)
