Child Development Program Guidelines, 1983 Revision.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Child Development.
The California Office of Child Development's child care and development program is designed to ensure an environment conducive to the development and growth of young children and provide parents the opportunity to work or prepare for employment to support their families. It is also intended to prevent or lessen child abuse or neglect and provide care to children of incapacitated parents. The guidelines described in this document cover all areas of the child care and development program, including the administration of community-based programs, the distribution of funds to county welfare departments for ongoing child care services, the administration of children's center programs, and innovative demonstration programs that meet special child care needs. Following sections devoted to state administration, contracts, and eligibility, guidelines are presented for admissions and enrollment in the state's six major admission categories: (1) general child care, (2) state-funded migrant child care and development, (3) federal base migratory program, (4) campus child care and development, (5) school-age parent and infant development, and (6) part-time child care. Further sections cover fee schedules, program components, agency administration, due process, and guidelines for resources and referrals, alternative payments, and contract management. (JBM)
