The Vermont Guide to Early Childhood Careers.
Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
This booklet describes early childhood education opportunities in the state of Vermont. The booklet was designed with the vision of early childhood education as a career lattice (rather than ladder) that allows workers to advance along broader pathways, crossing from one setting or program into another for which he or she is qualified. The "Vermont Early Childhood Lattice" is offered as a guideline to show readers the breadth of opportunities available in the field. Using the lattice, readers can then turn to appropriate sections of the booklet for more information. The booklet's sections are: (1) "Programs and Settings"; (2) "The Early Childhood Professions" (registered family home child care providers, teachers, paraeducators/special education assistants, teacher assistants, substitutes and volunteers, in-home child care providers, early childhood support specialists, program administrators, professional development service providers, home visitors and outreach workers); (3) "Credentials, Accreditation, and Licensure"; (4) "Planning Your Professional Development"; and (5) "Resources." Includes an alphabetical index to careers and job descriptions. (EV)
