WHERE IS DAY CARE HEADING.
REED, MILDRED A.
IN SEATTLE AND IN THE NATION, GOOD DAY CARE SERVICES MUST BE MADE MORE COMPREHENSIVE. A NARRATIVE OF THE EXPERIENCES OF THE SEATTLE DAY NURSERY ASSOCIATION SUGGESTS WAYS TO INITIATE AND SUSTAIN NEEDED CHILD CARE SERVICES. THESE SERVICES SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO FAMILIES WITH VARYING INCOMES WHO PAY FEES ON A SLIDING SCALE. EMERGENCY HELP FOR FAMILIES IN A CRISIS SHOULD INCLUDE HOME CARE GIVEN AT NIGHT AS WELL AS DURING PARENT OR CHILD ILLNESS. A CHILD CARE REGISTRY MIGHT RETAIN SUCH TRAINED EMPLOYEES AS RETIRED COUPLES TO HELP CARE FOR CHILDREN FROM 3 P.M. TO 11 P.M., TEEN-AGERS TO CARE FOR YOUNGSTERS AFTER SCHOOL, AND MATURE WOMEN TO PROVIDE HOME NURSING. IT HAS PROVED SUCCESSFUL TO RECRUIT MOTHERS FROM HOUSING PROJECTS TO BE TRAINED IN DAY CARE FOR THE CHILDREN OF FAMILIES IN THE IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORHOOD. CONGRESSIONAL LEGISLATION MUST BE CHANGED SO THAT IT FACILITATES, BUT DOES NOT COMPEL, THE USE OF DAY CARE CENTERS BY POVERTY PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS. DAY CARE PROGRAMS MUST BE CAREFULLY PLANNED IF THEY ARE TO AVOID BEING MERELY CUSTODIAL. CASE HISTORIES RECORDED BY THE SEATTLE DAY NURSERY ASSOCIATION ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SEATTLE DAY NURSERY ASSOCIATION (SEATTLE, FEBRUARY 8, 1968). (MS)
