Business and Child Care Handbook.
Collins, Natalie Madgy; And Others
Intended as a resource for corporate and industrial managers, employee groups, and others, this handbook provides basic discussion of child care and offers a guide for decision making. After the first chapter's brief introductory discussion of possible motives for becoming involved with child care, chapter 2 analyzes the phenomenon of the working mother by examining changes in the structure of the American family, changes in the composition of the workforce, and the need for child care services. Costs of child care are specified and discussed in chapter 3. In chapter 4, direct and indirect child care program options and elements of decision-making processes for employers are pointed out. Chapter 5 presents a business and child care project needs assessment system, a summary report of a needs assessment, and a sample child care study proposal. The seventh and concluding chapter briefly discusses the history of employer involvement in child care services in the United States. Various related materials are appended, including a glossary of terms, names and addresses of sponsors providing child care options, a directory of child care services and resources, an annotated list of federal and Minnesota state legislative acts relating to child care, several fact sheets, a list of references and related readings, and a brief list of compiled bibliographies.
