HIV/AIDS in Early Childhood Day-Care Settings. Final Report. Phase I.
McKinney, David D., Ed.; And Others
A feasibility study regarding the training and information needs of preschool and day care administrators, staff, and teachers regarding HIV/AIDS was conducted. This study also examined the issues associated with the presence of HIV-positive children in preschool and day care settings and the need for designing a program to help preschools and day care centers to develop a comprehensive and proactive policy. Parents and teachers of HIV-positive preschoolers were interviewed, and focus groups made up of parents, teachers, and day-care providers were formed. The study's objectives were as follows: (1) identify the policy, information, and education needs of preschools, day care centers, and their constituencies; (2) determine the best means to address the needs of preschools, day care centers, and their constituencies; (3) investigate the best way to package and deliver information and training needs for the target audience; and (4) identify the appropriate dissemination channels for the proposed package. The chapters in the report are: (1) "Phase I Activities," including a discussion of background literature, designing team meeting and focus groups, and outcome of activities; (2) "HIV/AIDS and Early Childhood Education: Background and Issues," covering special challenges, epidemiological trends, social and legal issues, barriers, psychosocial effects, and proactivity case studies; and (3) "Design Plan," focusing on the target audience, guiding principles, proposed product design, major content areas, commercial application, and anticipated outcome. A bibliography listing 108 references is provided. (BGC)
