There Is a Choice: Choosing Good Infant and Child Day Care. Final Report and Executive Summary.
The Child Development Programs Advisory Committee has completed a 1-year grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to educate day care consumers about guidelines for locating quality day care for infants and children. The project was conducted in three selected areas: urban, rural-migrant, and suburban. Two educational components were used to carry out project objectives. First, professional education focused on inservice training for health practitioners. Second, consumer education provided information to parents in maternity wards and clinics. Project activities to disseminate information on infant and child care included (1) inservice training for health educators, professionals, and pediatric nurse practitioners; (2) videocassette presentations for new parents in hospitals and clinics; (3) printed information; and (4) local meetings. Through these activities, the project established a link between parents of newborn infants and community child care resources. (The executive summary of the project is appended.) (Author/BJD)
