This newsletter theme issue looks at infant day care models including those emphasizing early intervention with special needs infants. The lead article, "Infants in Day Care: Reflections on Experiences, Expectations and Relationships," by Jeree H. Pawl, stresses the importance of understanding infants' and toddlers' capacities and needs in designing day care services. Three brief essays were adapted from a December, 1989 seminar and describe three distinct but related models for incorporating infant mental health insights and strategies into day care for young children. Titles and authors are: "Mental Health Consultation to Day Care Providers: The San Francisco Daycare Consultants Program" (Kadija Johnston); "Promoting and Safeguarding Early Relationships in Child Care: The Child Care Dallas Family Day Home System" (Sonya Bemporad); and "An Infant Mental Health Training Model for Day Care Professionals: The C. M. Hincks Institute National Day Care Training Project" (Elisabeth Muir and Elizabeth Tuters). Remaining articles include: "Models of Integration Through Early Intervention/Child Care Collaborations" (Mary Beth Bruder, Penny Deiner, and Sandy Sachs); "Outreach to Family Day Care: A National Volunteer Initiative" (Matia Finn-Stevenson and Pat Ward); "NICHD Infant Child-Care Network: The National Study of Young Children's Lives" (Sarah L. Friedman); and "Whole Babies, Parents and Pieces of Funds: Creating Comprehensive Programs for Infants and Toddlers" (Peggy Daly Pizzo). (DB)
