Starting Programs: Critical Elements and Stumbling Blocks. The Experience of a Parent-Run Program in the Public Schools.
Seltzer, Michelle Seligson
Parent-run, day care programs existing in public elementary schools in Brookline, Massachusetts are described in this paper. This program model is put forward as an example of a successful negotiating process between parents and school officials that is an alternative to public school prime sponsorship of day care. Three critical elements as steps that must be taken in order to start day care programs in community facilities which may not be predisposed to house such services are discussed. These elements are documentation, persuasion, and collaboration. (Author/SS)
