[Child Development Program Advisory Committee Materials.]
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Child Development Programs Advisory Committee.
This collection of materials includes seven items distributed by the State of California's Child Development Programs Advisory Committee. The first item, a report on infant care regulations describes hearings on infant care regulations held by the committee in January and February of 1990. Testimony covers the topics of staffing, capacity/ratio, training, licensing, and interpretations of regulations. A report called "A Look at Child Care Staff" concerns the problems of low wages and lack of benefits for child care staff. Included also are lists of 26 foundations in California that focus on young children, 26 foundations that focus on child care, and 14 foundations that "believe in a positive childhood." A fact sheet headed "A Day in the Life of California's Children" provides a series of statistics relevant to children and child care. A report prepared by the Committee for the State Legislature on the impact of a program of employer child care tax credits on employer-supported child care discusses the benefits of employer-supported child care, explains sections of the Revenue and Taxation Code, and provides information on corporate response to the programs. This report recommends extending the date for entrance into the program and funding an information outreach program. A list of committee members concludes the document. (BC)
