Position Paper on College-Sponsored Child Care Programs.
National Coalition for Campus Child Care, Inc., Milwaukee, WI.
Universities must be prepared to provide quality child care not only to accommodate their changing student population, but also to help attract and retain competent and dedicated employees. Campus child care programs should be: (1) models to the community, to early education specialists, to parents, and to policymakers; (2) an integral part of the higher education institution; (3) responsible and fair employers; (4) intended to demonstrate professionalism; (5) developmentally appropriate; (6) financially responsible and accountable; and (7) financially supported by the sponsoring institution.
