Perspectives on Work-Related Day Care. Child in the City Report No. 11.
Friendly, Martha; Johnson, Laura C.
This paper provides background information and a preliminary discussion of issues to be addressed during a one-day conference on "Future Directions in Work-Related Day Care," sponsored jointly by the Child in the City program and the Social Planning Council of Metropolitan Toronto. After describing the context, needs and historical development of work-related day care in the United States and Canada, the authors outline alternative models through which these kinds of services may be provided, and discuss the special role of organized labor in expanding opportunities for the provision of day care at the work-place. The advantages for both employers and parents, and the central issues involved in organizing work-related day care are summarized. (Author/MP)
