A Study in Child Care. Volume I: Findings. Day Care Programs Reprint Series.
Fitzsimmons, Stephen J.; Rowe, Mary P.
This is the first of four volumes of a study designed to seek and describe formal child care arrangements of good quality and to investigate the cost of reproducing these centers and home care arrangements. The twenty centers and systems described include centers all around the country: on Indian reservations, in the inner city, in hospitals, rural settings and migrant communities. Sponsors range from welfare departments to labor unions. This volume presents an overview of each of the twenty centers. Appendixes comprise 7/8 of the document. Appendix A is concerned with general program information, notable program elements, child and family characteristics, funding and expenditures. Appendix B contains summary center descriptions and cost data. (AJ)
