Who's Watching the Babies? Improving the Quality of Family, Friend, and Neighbor Child Care
Powell, Douglas R.
ZERO TO THREE
One of the important influences on a child's development is the quality of his or her early care and education experiences. It is estimated that more than 1 million children in the U.S. are cared for while their parents are at work by nonlicensed caregivers who are family, friends, or neighbors - and these caregivers can be difficult to reach through the traditional training programs that can help them provide high-quality care. The author presents methods and programs to reach these caregivers and to help them understand child development and the importance of providing a nurturing environment.
