Community Solutions for Child Care: Report of a Conference.
Friedman, Dana E., Ed.
This conference report defines the need for community solutions for child care, discusses community child care provision and funding, and suggests strategies for child care advocates. The first two sections of the report discuss the results of the Family Circle Magazine Child Care Survey and foundation, government, labor and industry funding options. Subsequent sections provide descriptions of presently operating direct and indirect services which help parents meet their child care needs. Direct services have been provided by business and labor, the federal government, the public schools and academic communities and other local agencies. Indirect services provided by brokers who offer technical assistance, training, information and referral, and parent education are also described. The final section explores problems of developing a constituency for day care and emphasizes the importance of data, the media and national organizations for successful lobbying efforts. Materials related to the conference and topics discussed, such as tables, agenda, participant lists, helpful publications and child care programs in Federal agencies, industries and labor unions are included in eight appendices.
