This practicum paper documents the development and distribution of a handbook for child care administrators designed to increase parent involvement. It provides a review of the literature on parent involvement in day care centers and outlines the process used to develop the 12-page handbook. The handbook includes ways in which to measure the current level of parent involvement in child care settings and suggestions to increase future parent involvement. The handbook was distributed to 10 child care administrators for evaluation. A survey of the administrators found that most responded favorably to the handbook and considered it a useful tool to increase parent involvement. (Ten appendices include copies of cover letters, administrator surveys, administrator comment forms, implementation plan, and the handbook itself. Contains 31 references.) (MDM)
