A Study in Child Care (Case Study from Volume II-B): "I'm a New Woman Now." Day Care Programs Reprint Series.
The Family Day Care Career Program plan of New York City provides day care for approximately 3500 children of public assistance or low income career mothers (working, in school, or in training) in the homes of teacher mothers (day care mothers). The day care homes are administered by 21 sub-centers, which provide support for teacher mothers through home visits by educational aides and day care aides. Two career development paths are available to women in the program: internal (teacher mothers may move upward to other staff positions) and outside the system (career mothers are given counseling and helped to receive training and job placement). The system provides a means for teacher mothers to earn needed money at home and to increase their feelings of self-worth. With good day care for their children available free of charge, career mothers are able to improve their lives through employment or training. Information on the program's history, organization, staff, policymaking, and use of resources is included. An appendix contains illustrative materials. (NH)
