Caring for Infants and Toddlers in Groups: Necessary Considerations for Emotional, Social, and Cognitive Development.
Zero to Three, v14 n5 Apr-May 1994
This special issue focuses on infant and toddler child care. The title article, by J. Ronald Lally and others, examines the sources of problems in the management and planning of quality child care. It also explores six key components of early group experience: group size, quality of the physical environment, primary caregiving assignments, continuity of care, cultural and familial continuity, and meeting the needs of the individual within the group context. Other articles include: (1) "Making Family Day Care Work for Infants and Toddlers" (Mary Larner); (2) "Helping Toddlers with Peer Group Entry Skills" (Alice Sterling Honig); (3) "Developing Supportive Relationships in Child Care: A Training Initiative of the Northeast Florida City TOTS Team" (Virginia Greiner and others); (4)"Providing Goal-Directed Technical Assistance to State Policymakers: Lessons learned by Zero to Three's Better Care for Babies Project"; and (5) "Welfare Reform, Child Care, and Families with Infants and Toddlers" (Bernice Weissbourd and J. Ronald Lally). The journal also has reviews of 3 instructional videotape series and 10 books and other publications. (MDM)
