Noting that every community is faced with providing high quality, affordable, and accessible child care, and that child care resource centers (CCRCs) are among the best tools for helping communities meet child care needs with the combined resources of the community, this manual is designed to help CCRCs design a public education program to meet the unique needs of their communities. The 10 chapters discuss the following topics: (1) the goals and functions of public education programs; (2) program planning; (3) community assessment; (4) goal-setting and project selection; (5) presentation of child care issues to the public; (6) media relations; (7) key child care issues; (8) laws and government agencies that affect child care; (9) program evaluation; and (10) resources available to public education committees.
