Day Care and Child Development in Your Community.
Day Care and Child Development Council of America, Inc., Chicago, IL.
Uncoordinated community day care efforts often result in an unbalanced availability of kinds of nursery school programs. Too much money is wasted on unnecessary administrative services, and training of personnel is not consistent in quality or quantity. Community Coordinated Child Care (4-C) program tries to alleviate this confusion. This handbook is to help citizens who want to implement a 4-C program in their community. It explains how the 4-C program can be effective in planning and coordinating the preschool and day care efforts of local groups. 4-C consulting personnel provide citizens with the resources and structure to use in their own community projects. The handbook outlines 4-C structure from the federal level down to the community level advising that federal and state bodies act only as administrative services to the local people who hold all the policy-making power. The necessary first steps for organizing a local 4-C program are detailed and potential sources of funding are outlines in this handbook. (Refer to PS 002 545 for additional information on the 4-C program). (MH)
