Community Coordinated Child Care Systems: Perspectives from Model Organizations.
Katz, Matthew A.; Suelzle, Marijean
The Community Coordinated Child Care (4C's) Delivery Systems Conference was designed to bring together, for the first time, administrators of community coordinated multi-site child care programs from across the United States for the purpose of exchanging detailed information about their organizations and concerns. Six program administrators from Illinois, Kentucky, Florida and North Carolina attended the conference, heard presentations by Illinois State and U.S. Office of Human Development officials, and were interviewed by Northwestern University students studying child care policy and administration. An additional interview with an administrator from New Jersey was conducted by a student visiting that area. Subsections of this conference report discuss the concept of community coordinated child care; alternative models for structuring delivery systems; school-linkages, voucher and developmental assistance approaches to improving delivery systems; cash-flow management, costs of the coordinating agency, complexity of funding mechanisms, and administrator role; and aspects of child care services within the context of the broad social issue of social fragmentation and pluralism, the changing role of the family, and service needs of the future. Highlights of the keynote address by Congressman Abner Mikva are reported and summary descriptions of eight child care delivery systems are provided. (Author/RH)
