Role of Tribal Child Care Programs in Serving Children Birth to Five
Willis, Linda Mayo;

||An investigation of American Indian child care directors' perceptions in two areas: (1) the reservation community's efforts to promote and preserve cultural integrity in the local transmission of cultural values to children, aged birth to five, who are enrolled in tribal child care programs on American Indian reservations; and (2) how statewide quality improvement systems are (or are not) assisting them in their efforts to promote continuity of cultural education and quality child care. The project uses a multiple case study design wherein sixteen American Indian program directors from child care centers in tribal communities are divided into four equal groups defined by leadership experience and tribal affiliation/enrollment. The participants are all members of different tribes, representing sites located in diverse geographic regions, and selected to provide variation among different stages in their professional careers and different kinds and levels of challenge encountered in their work.
