"[The trainees] just come back beaming [about] what they've learned and how they've applied it at the day care center."—Karen Dessoye, Director, Non-credit, Luzerne County Community College
"I really think the way the material is presented g~ves the older adult a very good feeling for a young parent."—Rae Connors, Early Childhood Department, Lehigh County Community College
The need for competent, affordable child care has reached critical proportions. The number of children has increased, while the pool of young, potential child care employees has dramatically declined. Generations Together offers a progressive solution to this growing problem.
The first of its kind, this curriculum handbook is designed to capitalize on potential child care workers who are now over fifty-five years old. Founded on the principles of adult education and with the procedures tested at numerous community colleges, this book seeks to unite a new generation of parents and children with an older generation of Americans as they reenter die paid work force. This book and its extensive collection of handouts for classroom use is an innovative and valuable resource for educators, trainers, job developers, government
agencies, and other professionals training or serving older citizens
