Training Child Day Care Personnel: What Is the Appropriate Role for Licensing Agencies?
Brown, Nancy H.
The role of child day care licensing is examined in the context of expanding requirements for provider training. A brief background statement is followed by discussion of the training components of goals, content, and delivery systems. Discussion of the role of the licensing agency focuses on what counts as acceptable training, whether licensing staff should serve as training instructors, strategies encouraging compliance and facilitating enforcement, and principles that should guide enforcement. It is concluded that: (1) qualified child care staff must be retained; (2) professional development of individuals should be encouraged; (3) a training approval system which requires a special unit in the licensing agency must be designed; and (4) a comprehensive training system which prepares individuals to work competently with children regardless of setting should be designed in collaboration with other agencies.
