Developmental Day Care Services for Children. 1970 White House Conference on Children, Report of Forum 17. (Working Copy).
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
When properly funded and provided with adequate educational, health, and other needed resources, day care programs can make an important contribution to the life of many American families. For a variety of reasons, present services for providing supplementary child care are insufficient. To respond to the changes in our national life style, we must develop a network of supplementary child care facilities readily available to all families with children flexible enough to be part of a family's life, and good enough to promote full development of our nation's children. As a start toward such a system, this forum recommends establishing and allocating the total of financial commitment needed for day care, developing a preventive approach to children's needs and problems, mobilizing continuing public support for day care, and coordinating operational procedures at federal, state, and local levels.
