The demand for child care is immense, and is growing every day. More and more two-salary families are joining the already large number of working single parents. And more and more people want to stay at home but need a steady source of income. Family day care - caring for other people's children in one's home - is often the answer to both. "Caring for Other People's Children" is a practical guide and resource manual for family day care written specifically for family day care providers. The author aims to offer everything family day care providers need to know to plan, start and run a successful day care business in the home. This 1984 book has been reissued and updated to address all of the important business and licensing issues that have arisen as the family day care industry has moved into the 1990s. The book offers detailed, easy-to-follow guidelines on: child care; planning activities; education; discipline; running a small business; first aid; nutrition; learning disabilities and much more. As well as being valuable to anyone considering starting or currently involved in running a family day care business, this book should also function as a useful text for community college courses in family day care.
