Austin, Elizabeth M.; And Others
This guide is designed to assist employed parents in preparing themselves and their children for a successful child care experience. Chapter 1 covers child care selection, including resources available to aid in selection, characteristics of quality care, comparative shopping, and changing child care programs. Chapter 2 provides tips for preparing oneself for the required paperwork and forms, child care routines, and the provider-parent relationship. Chapter 3 deals with preparing one's child for entering child care, with specific guidelines for children of different ages. Chapter 4 instructs parents on clothing and other items for children at child care which can help the day run smoothly. Chapter 5 provides guidelines for staying healthy at home, reducing the spread of infection in child care settings, and identifying potential health problems common in child care settings. Chapter 6 examines ways to prepare on a daily basis for getting to child care, school, and work on time, including preparing the night before, having organized storage areas for outdoor clothing, and making a checklist of items needed for child care. Chapters 7 and 8 present guidelines for dealing with the daily separation and reuniting of parents and children to better enable them to cope with their feelings. The guide concludes with a list of resources for additional information and a child care success checklist. (Contains two references.) (DR)
