On-Campus Child Care at Independent Colleges and Universities in New York State.
The experiences of a variety of independent colleges and universities in New York State in providing different kinds of on-campus child care are described in this report. Findings were gathered from a survey and several interviews of academic institutions in order to assess various options in child care arrangements. The report consists of three main sections. First, off-campus and on-campus child care facilities are described, and main sources of revenue for child care centers are indicated. Second, results of a survey of the 108 member institutions of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities are reported, and data on 16 child care facilities affiliated with the 14 independent institutions offering on-campus care are summarized in 2 tables. Third, in order to provide additional information useful to institutions considering the establishment of a child care service, interviews were conducted with directors of 14 of the 16 on-campus child care facilities. The interview schedule included queries on space and facilities, costs and funding sources, regulatory and inspection agencies, and staffing. Findings of the interviews are reported in brief case studies. (RH)
