An Institutional Analysis of Day Care Program. Part I, Group Day Care: A Study in Diversity. Final Report.
Milich, Cynthia; And Others
At the outset of this report on group day care, two questions of primary concern are posed: How does a community get group day care? Ane once it is obtained, how can the community regulate its quality? With these questions as general guidelines, the report examines most aspects of every possible kind of group day care project ranging from local church projects to federally funded programs. Specific examples are treated anecdotally to help the reader understand the specific problems of establishing and maintaining quality day care. Another section places day care in historical perspective. The main facets examined are the physical site, population characteristics, regulatory bodies, ability to command staff resources, administrative constraints, and leadership abilities. A director's leadership abilities depend on five factors: (1) professional skill, (2) business competence, (3) political knowhow, (4) creative ingenuity, and (5) commitment. In an evaluation of existing day care facilities in California, the report states that the strongest point is the diversity of available programs. A bibliography is included. (MH)
