Employer Sponsored Child Care: Four Issues Papers.
This publication of the California Governor's Advisory Committee on Child Development Programs includes four issues papers dealing with employer sponsored child care. The first paper describes three approaches to employer support of child care, lists the elements of the system planners must consider when designing appropriate responses to employers' child care needs, and discusses the impact of employer sponsorship on child care quality, availability, and cost. The second paper examines the cost of child care as one of several incentives and disincentives which affect employers as potential sponsors of child care and influence parents as the consumers of child care. It is argued that child care cost is a small disincentive relative to major benefits in terms of productivity, community relations, employee relations, and taxes. Paper three emphasizes the importance of including parents in the development of employer sponsored child care and suggests several ways to achieve parent choice and involvement. Finally, some specific solutions to the problem of caring for children with mild illnesses when parents are at work are identified in paper four. (Author/MP)
