Center Caregivers and Family Child Care Providers Are Different: Training Profiles and Preferences.
Dunn, Loraine; Tabor, Susan
This study sought to determine if family child care providers and center caregivers: (1) seek training for different reasons; (2) hold varying opinions regarding the best source of training according to content area; (3) demonstrate differences in training content obtained; and (4) use different training sources for a variety of training topics. Data were gathered from a mailed survey of licensed family child care and day care center providers in a Midwestern state. Findings indicated differences between family providers and center caregivers. Family providers value and depend more upon resource and referral agencies than do center caregivers; conferences, inservice training, and college courses were consistently preferred by center caregivers. Also center caregivers were more likely to have received training in a variety of content areas than were family providers. (Includes 4 data tables. Contains 12 references.) (EV)
