Caring for Other People's Children: A Complete Guide to Family Day Care. Reissued and Updated.
Alston, Frances Kemper
As more two-salary families join the already large number of working single parents, and more people want to stay at home with their children but need a steady source of income, family day care--caring for other people's children in one's home--is often viewed as the answer to both trends. This guide and resource manual, updated from the original c1984 version and intended specifically for family day care providers offers information for providers to plan, start, and run a successful day care business in the home. Areas covered include: day care space: caring for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children; providing for special needs children; planning activities; interacting with parents; running a small business; nutrition; and discipline.
