Putting It Together: Some Program and Policy Issues in School-Age Day Care.
Morgan, Gwen G.
This paper comments on program and policy issues concerning school-age day care. The issues discussed are as follows: (1) what kind of day care provision do school-age children prefer? (2) what constitutes a high quality day care program? and (3) how can parents, the general public, and politicians be persuaded to support and finance day care programs? It is emphasized that school-age day care is economically feasible and that it is pro-family in that it supports rather than substitutes for the family. Pleas for extensive research on school-age day care and for high quality and universally accessible day care provision are made. (Author/MP)
