Coming Together: City, County and State Child Care Planning: A One Day Conference (Sacramento, California, February 19, 1992).
California Child Development Programs Advisory Committee, Sacramento.
In February, 1992, the Child Development Programs Advisory Committee and the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) hosted a conference that explored child care planning on a city, county, and state level. Introductory activities included a synopsis of the work of the CSAC, and a talk by California first lady Gayle Wilson, who called for cooperation and coordination to address issues critical to children and families. The balance of the conference consisted of four 1-hour panel discussions, each of which was followed by a brief question-and-answer session. The first panel discussion covered the meaning and potential benefits of state and local planning for counties. The second discussion considered the availability of demographic data and methods that local communities could use to collect data. The development of a local child care plan and methods of establishing funding for such a plan were the topics of the third panel discussion. The fourth discussion examined methods of state support for local planning. The panelists, who were professionals in social services or related fields, are listed for each discussion. (BC)
