Building an Early Childhood Parent-Teacher Resource Center.
Holloway, Mary A.
This manual is a guidebook to the development of the Project Enlightenment Parent-Teacher Resource Center and serves as a reference for the replication of this type of center in other communities. The manual consists of three chapters that are conceptualized as building blocks, because they are sequential, incremental, and independent. Block A discusses awareness of the need for a Parent-Teacher Resource Center and the planning involved. Block B emphasizes the nuts and bolts of the center's organization and operation. Discussion begins with facilities and site and center arrangement. The following areas are described: Office and administration; instruction; production; video viewing; storage; a library; circulation; a foyer; and borwsing. Special centers and a children's corner are also described. Other topics in Block B include funding, personnel, resources, programming, public relations, and promotion. Block C describes the development of a center in one's own area and includes the most often asked questions about beginning a center. Helpful answers are offered by the center staff. Appendices provide an example of a game made by parents and teachers as well as a list of games with corresponding master activities Index, a sample of the mailing list card, a publications list, and a supply fee sheet.
