Winthrop College, a resource center for information on employer-sponsored child care, conducted an Appalachian Regional Commission project designed to assess the feasibility of employer-sponsored child care, gather technical information about current models, determine child care needs of working women in South Carolina, and encourage employers to become involved in meeting the family needs of employees. Project activities undertaken included surveys of needs and attitudes of working women, research on related literature, visits to existing employer-sponsored programs, and development of an information and promotion package consisting of an audiovisual presentation "Child Care and Company," a supplemental booklet, and a separate pamphlet suitable for mailing. Nineteen pages of this project report describe the design, implementation, and findings of the project. The bulk of the report consists of approximately 90 pages of appended materials, including copies of questionnaire forms and related materials, presentations of survey data, a description of relevant tax incentives, and summary descriptions of 11 operating employer-sponsored programs. The final appendix outlines options, advantages, disadvantages, and tax incentives for several employer-sponsored child care program models. On-site, consortium, vendor, voucher, child care, information and referral, and school-age child care models are included; child care programs exemplifying most models are listed. (RH)
