Community College Day Care Students: Why They Do What They Do.
Lumsden, D. Barry; Youngblood, Michelle K.
Michigan Community College Journal: Research & Practice, v7 n1 p89-98 Spr 2001
Discusses why community college students go into early childhood education and the day care profession. Cites one study that found that day care workers define their self-worth through their relationships with the children they care for, rather than through the identification of their occupational skills. Concludes that those who enter early childhood education courses and day care professions feel an affinity for children. (NB)
