The KLH Experience: An Evaluative Report of Day Care in Action at the KLH Child Development Center Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Curran, Joseph R.; Jordan, John W.
This report concludes a two part study of the KLH Child Development Center covering July 1969-June 1970. The history and background of this industry-based, experimental day care center are presented along with the nature and reasons for its change from an industry-related center identified with one work community to a private community center serving many segments of the population. Administrative aspects such as center and state regulations, tuition, admission policies and staffing are included. Educational and nutritional functions are briefly described. Budget, cost analysis and cost-benefit analysis are detailed. Seven alternative approaches to financing industry-related day care are considered. To help anyone wishing to establish an industry-based center, some impressions are shared by researchers and consultants involved for at least two years with the KLH project. The appendix contains a copy of sample forms and questionnaires distributed to parents. Part one is available as PS 005 036. (WY)
