The Politics of Family Day Care: Legislatively What Can Be Done.
Anderson, Elaine A.
A questionnaire designed to measure a number of topical issues regarding child care providers and child care provision was sent to all licensed family day care home providers in the state of Connecticut. The questionnaire focused on six major areas of investigation: the service provider's history in the area of day care, issues surrounding licensure, training and technical assistance, and providers' interaction with the state and district administration of family day care. Several questions were asked about the children under care and the families making use of it. The final section of the questionnaire focused on the family day care home providers themselves. Of 2,500 eligible participants, 800 were randomly selected for participation. A total of 386 completed questionnaires were returned. Results are discussed, and general policy recommendations in the areas of administration, legislation, and social science research are offered. (RH)
