Community Coordinated Child Care (4-C) Manual.
Day Care and Child Development Council of America, Inc., Washington, DC.
This manual, which will be periodically supplemented and revised, contains reference materials and information relating to the Community Coordinated Child Care (4-C) concept. The 4-C program is a mechanism for coordinating federal, state, and local resources to develop day care services in a community. The manual explains the steps for establishing a child care program, including organization, federal-state cooperation, and funding procedures. One section discusses organization on the community level, ranging from program objectives and planning to fiscal coordination and analysis of resources. Each federal agency involved in 4-C is listed and its structure and services are explained. To aid community organizers in working with the government, a section contains names and addresses of persons available to give information, consult, and help in making decisions affecting day care. Selected reference sources are provided for topics such as program planning, child development and early childhood education, parent involvement, and research. Appendixes contain 4-C fact sheets, policy statements, and amendments relating to child care. A booklet entitled "Federal Funds for Day Care Projects" is included. (DR)
