520 |a Licensed and unlicensed providers of child care in Virginia were asked about their training needs. Responses revealed that providers have little time for themselves and their families, and therefore, innovative training methods must be planned to deliver programs that will fit into their lifestyles. It was also found that new providers needed an initial understanding of the business aspects of family child care, and knowledge of children's needs, first aid, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. More experienced providers needed updates on topics such as taxes, parent communication, solutions for problems, and networking. When providers initially began caring for children, they relied on their own parenting experiences, experience with babysitting, and work in church and youth programs. A total of 82 percent of these providers indicated that they wanted or needed additional training in child care and development. However, 67 percent indicated that they could not take part in such training, citing "no time to attend" as their primary reason. Although providers received their information about child care from written materials from community agencies and magazines, their first preferences for receiving information were by videotape and short-term workshops. Providers' most urgent needs were for "respect, support, and appreciation" from the community. (AC)
