Eileen Allen); (6) "Caring for Children in a Diverse World" (Patricia G. Ramsey); (7)"Family Day Care: The 'Other' Form of Care" (Susan Kontos); (8) "Before- and After-School Child Care for Elementary School Children" (Michelle Seligson and Ellen Gannett, with Lillian Cotlin); (9) "Staffing Issues in Child Care" (Paula Jorde Bloom); (10) "Designing Settings To Support High-Quality Child Care" (Thelma Harms); and (11) "Child Care: A Look To the Future" (Bernard Spodek and Olivia N.
