Suggested content for the training program includes the rights of children, child development, behavior management, the dangers of stereotyping, and the All Handicapped Children's Act (pl 94-142). Observations of children and on-the-job experience with performance feedback from trainers are recommended as useful means of training elderly volunteers. Program goals include (1) increasing the frequency of intergenerational contact; (2) fostering positive attitudes between generations; (3) providing services for children with special needs; (4) meeting older citizens' needs for growth and development; and (5) fostering a sense of the continuity of human life.

9 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is intended to provide information for the family seeking day care for its children, the family wishing to begin a family day care service, and an agency considering implementing a network of family day care homes. The first section of the handbook is especially intended for parents who are trying to decide which type of day care arrangement would be best for their child. Section ii presents some practical considerations for the prospective caregiver to think about before offering family day care in her home. Included in this discussion is useful information on insurance, taxes, recordkeeping, licensing standards, schedules, emergency care procedures, mealtimes, free time, discipline, and suggested sources for instructional materials. Section iii is a general guide for agencies operating family day care programs, and should prove helpful to them in examining their capabilities in terms of the functions, expertise, finances, and staff requirements. It is emphasized that day care services should be selected by parents and established by professionals with great care to ensure the best possible environment for the nurturing, learning, and protection of the child.

Developmental continuity across preschool and primary grades : implications for teachers by Nita Barbour( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental continuity refers to designing early childhood instruction that provides learning experiences based on children's prior knowledge, follows a natural progression across preschool and the early grades, and allows progress at each child's rate and style of learning. There are many ways of providing developmental continuity, but common to all is the idea that teachers, parents, and administrators work together to provide a continuum of developmentally appropriate educational experiences for children. This book is a resource for teachers who wish to put developmental continuity into practice in their classrooms. The book is organized in six chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the meaning and history of developmental continuity and associated problems and concerns. Chapter 2 serves as a planning guide and highlights some projects already in place. Necessary changes in school and classroom organization, the importance of coordination of schools with preschools, and communication with parents and the community are examined in chapter 3. Chapter 4 covers the creation of meaningful curriculum for developmental continuity, and chapter 5 offers suggestions for structuring the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual environment in which the curriculum will be implemented. Finally, chapter 6 examines evaluation issues and discusses methods for documenting children's progress and achievement. Contains 80 references. (TJQ)
